Glenroy College is equipped with a range of well-maintained facilities. Our Performing Arts Centre was refurbished in 2007 and includes a large area for assemblies and functions, which is also used as a large space for Drama classes. The building also includes areas for classroom and instrumental music, as well as a kitchen, toilets and foyer for functions. Instrumental music classes cover a variety of areas including singing, percussion, brass, piano, guitar and keyboard. Students can be involved in choirs, brass ensembles or the college band. The Performing Arts Centre also has a state of the art sound and lighting system.
The college runs an extensive visual arts program in purpose built facilities which includes art rooms, a ceramic room with kilns and a multimedia area with an Apple multimedia setup.
The science wing was constructed in 2005 and comprises four large rooms for practical work and a computer pod which can be utilised from all rooms. Information Technology also includes a large laboratory area for preparation of practical work.
The college has a large gymnasium which includes a full size basketball court and a classroom for theory work, whilst our outside sport areas include basketball, netball and soccer areas. With the construction of Glenroy Central Primary School recently completed, areas for football, cricket and tennis are temporarily out of action, but a new shared synthetic court area will be established for both schools. Our existing basketball towers have undergone a recent safety check and we will be installing new backboards and rings as soon as possible.
All classrooms across the college have been fitted out with data projectors and air-conditioners during 2010-11. Some also contain interactive whiteboards.
The college has an interior canteen with some seating as well as a separate lunch room. Students can purchase food at recess and lunchtime or order their lunch. The yard has tables and chairs for students to sit during breaks.
Glenroy College has a library that is open every recess and until 4pm each evening for students to borrow books, complete homework and utilise computers. The library has personal computers as well as laptops for student use.
Our technology wing includes areas for electronics, wood and metal, with other areas for textiles and information technology. We also have a fully equipped foods room for cooking and access to Mulberry Community Garden which is located onsite.
The college VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) and Internship programs have designated areas for years 10, 11 and 12 students, many of whom are undergoing TAFE (Technical and Further Education) courses or work placements whilst at school.
Recent works include installation of extra security cameras, new fencing along Cardinal Rd, garden beds, electronic signage at the front of the college, air conditioners, data projectors, the repainting of the school and the refurbishment of the basketball courts. The school toilets were renovated in 2013.
