The School has commenced construction on new seating on the north-east corner of the Main Oval. The purpose of this seating is to provide comfort and shade for the Senior School students who gather in that part of the School for their recess and lunch times. For larger “home days” in winter sport, the additional seating will be very welcome. Work began on this new seating in Term 4 2016. We expect that the project will be completed in time for the new winter season in 2017.
Designs for the new, permanent Preparatory School (Pre K to Year 2) have been finalised and it is anticipated that the construction of this new facility will commence in the middle of 2017.
Sports Hall and Centenary Design Centre Extension
An architectural firm has been appointed to design the new Sports Hall and Centenary Design Centre Extension, which will be located on The Avenue.
The Design Centre also needs to be extended. There are three demountable buildings on the Unwin Road frontage and they must be replaced by a permanent structure. It is a good opportunity to update some aspects of the building and to add much-needed Exhibition Space and perhaps a Food Technology facility.
