Recent Building Works

In 2018 the $2.5m STEMworks building program was completed with the refurbishment of the Science wing on the Senior Campus. Students now enjoy beautifully appointed laboratories complete with the latest technology to enhance their scientific study and a modern STEM outdoor learning space.

Current Building Plans

Planning for the significant $30 million Building Better Schools project is currently underway that will amalgamate both campuses onto the Senior Campus, whilst maintaining the distinct principles of middle and senior schooling. This extensive project will involve the refurbishment of existing learning and outdoor spaces, expansion of the gymnasium and Arts/Technology facilities, relocation of the carpark and the new construction of an administrative building and multi-storey middle school. The school community looks forward to these new facilities in 2022.
