The school’s need for an expansive covered area suitable for a variety of uses was more than met with this latest building which forms the central hub of the Master Plan. Providing ample accommodation for full school assemblies, indoor sports, dance and theatre, this new facility also provided multi-use meeting rooms, two music rooms, amenities and additional learning spaces.

The restrictive site and limited budget required a creative approach to maximise useable area for minimal cost. Located so that the main hall opens fully to the adjacent school oval and outdoor play areas, the layout maximises the opportunities for a variety of multi-use activities

The building can also operate independently outside of school hours, providing an additional asset for church and community use.
