Facilities and Campus

Giving Hearts and Minds the space to grow.

Chevalier College is located in the beautiful Southern Highlands region of New South Wales. Our extensive school campus is situated on 100 acres, in Burradoo. With sprawling playing fields, our onsite farm and state of the art facilities, the sheer size and beauty of our campus truly sets us apart from other schools.

The College is well-equipped with excellent facilities that support the growth and wellbeing of our students, including:

 

Performing Arts

Our Performing Arts Centre was extended and renovated in 2018. The performance theatre gained spacious backstage areas, a sizable green room and rehearsal spaces; new change rooms, accessible amenities, and an impressive new foyer. Individual and communal practice rooms and dedicated dance and drama studios also form part of the centre. Considerable investment was made in the acoustics of the performance and rehearsal spaces and many local and overseas artists hire these facilities for concert performances and lectures.

Multi Purpose Hall

Our Multipurpose Hall was constructed in 2018. It is a great new asset for our PDHPE department, sporting and school events. Retractable tiered seating is a welcome feature for our awards ceremonies, celebration days and large community gatherings.

McGrath Hall

McGrath Hall seats up to 700 guests for sit-down dinners and is the venue for our annual Presentation Ball and Valedictory Dinners.  Many of our community events, masses, liturgies, assemblies, musical plays and awards ceremonies are held here with seating for up to 1400 at these events.  The hall also caters for our PDHPE classes and as an inside sports centre for gymnastics, basketball, netball and volleyball.

Trade Skills Centre

The Chevalier College Highlands Trades Skills Centre opened in 2015 – a contemporary learning space for Construction and Primary Industries.

Extensive sports facilities

Our larger campus means we have extensive sports facilities.  We have six large sports grounds and other courts and tracks We are part of the Independent Sports Association (ISA) and regularly host events on campus. Our facilities include:

  • Soccer fields
  • Hockey fields
  • Rugby fields
  • Cricket pitch

Mountain Biking Track

Mountain biking is one of our most popular sports, providing a great option for active students who may not gravitate towards the traditional ISA team sports.  Our NSW State Champion team trains on extensive, graded tracks within college grounds and also travels further afield to compete in races and challenges.

Working Farm

Our on site working farm is home to cattle, sheep, alpaca and chickens, as well as a bountiful vegetable garden, and the Show Team is responsible for caring for and then presenting the animals at agricultural shows, frequently bringing home multiple awards for the college from local events and further afield such as the Royal Easter Show.

Jules Café and commercial kitchen

Students studying hospitality have access to specialist facilities, including state-of-the-art domestic and commercial kitchens adjacent to a full service teaching café “Jules Café” where students can work towards their certificate III.
