The community hall is in the school grounds, providing additional space for assemblies, events and programmes.

Mount Biggs belongs to a cluster of 7 schools offering opportunities for students to participate alongside a larger group of peers for sporting and cultural events.
The BOT and staff look to build on the great learning and community development the previous principal led over the past 14 years. With the appointment of a new Principal and two new staff for 2018 we are excited about our staff lineup and the opportunities this brings.
