The Donvale campus provides students from Early Learning to Year 6 with facilities that blend seamlessly with the surrounding natural, native bushland and the adjoining Mullum Creek.

The buildings are designed to reflect the natural landscape of Donvale, including the tree-house-inspired and well-resourced library; plant life inside all classrooms; and large, dedicated spaces for art, music and sport. This peaceful setting is enhanced by community artwork created by the students, staff and parents of Carey Donvale.

Our Schools

Our Donvale Campus caters for students from Early Learning to Year 6.

Donvale is an area with a distinctively Australian character, populated by native plants that are home to a magnificent array of bird and animal life. The campus joins the Mullum Mullum Creek Linear Park, which provides a unique opportunity to learn from nature throughout the Junior School journey. Students often benefit from studying the wetlands, collecting samples and recording findings for a variety of subjects.

This includes the Bush Kinder program for our Early Learning Centre children at Carey Donvale. The program is designed to allow children to encounter and engage with the natural environment, establish a meaningful relationship with it and develop their curiosity, resilience and sense of agency.
