The Creative Arts Project is off to a great start in Term 1, on the journey to transform the ground floor of the old Middle School Art and Craft Electives Block. This level once housed the metalwork rooms, and most recently The Anzac Buffet space and Uniform Shop.
The project will provide the College with two new fine arts classrooms, two new sound proof music classrooms and a new area for media studies. There will be seven new practice rooms with an adjoining recording room, a creative studio, a print making room, a new creative arts courtyard, an outdoor walkway, and improvements to the adjacent landscaping.
The majority of the demolition work is now complete with the pouring of internal concrete retaining walls and internal timber wall framing well underway.
When complete the project will enable centralisation of creative arts facilities allowing all K-10 creative arts subjects to be taught from the one location and ensure all students benefit from the redevelopment. This is a very exciting project that will significantly boost the quality of the College’s creative arts facilities.
The project is expected to be completed by the start of the 2018 school year.
Changes to the College’s traffic management will remain in place for the entire school year to enable the building works to continue without impacting on the safety of students who utilise the school bus services. However, due to these changes, I would like to remind parents not to queue in the main driveway when trying to enter the K-4 carpark. It is important that the main driveway is kept clear of parked or queued cars to ensure the safe movement of traffic.
Thank you for your support and patience during this significant building project.
