New Innovation Centre
I am excited to announce that we will be building!
Plans for the School’s new Innovation Centre (to replace Blocks 1 and 2) were delayed because of the pandemic, but we are now about to commence the work.
The new building, right in the heart of the School, will house:
- A Possibility Hub for teaching innovation
- The Centre for Innovators and Entrepreneurs
- Start-up business spaces for students
- New spaces for teaching IT
- A presentation space for 150 people
- A new Secondary School Library
- Study areas for senior students
- New hospitality kitchens and teaching areas
- Staff professional development rooms to support Realms of Thinking
- Sippers (relocated)
The building will be available for all students, from Prep to Year 12. In fact, teams of students from across the School have played a role in its design and the design of the landscaping around it.
Work will commence from the beginning of May (during Term 2) with the relocation of electrical mains around the site. Then, in June/July (during the winter break), Blocks 1 and 2 will be demolished. Work on the new building will commence sometime in Term 3, with completion in late 2022. While the site is logistically challenging, we will be working hard to ensure that everyone on site remains safe.
We are taking out a loan for the construction of the building. If you would like to be part of this project, any donation to the School’s Building Fund is tax deductible.
