EARLY LEARNING CENTRE

As part of the College campus, children at Chancery Lane have the opportunity to utilise the College facilities and visit the school library as well as being involved in College activity days throughout the year including Book Week, Mercy Day Carnival and our Primary Christmas concert. This interaction with the wider College community allows the young girls joining us in Reception to familiarise themselves with our environment.

Primary Students enjoying our new playground!

Term 1 2022, saw the completion and unveiling of our new beautiful nature playground. In many ways, the process allowed the students to see how much hard work it took to make their dream playground a reality. Students are having so much fun in this engaging and attractive space and we are grateful to the team from Climbing Tree for making it happen.
