2017 Renovation And Refit Projects

Published by Jessica Tay

Here are the updates on some of the exciting refit and renovation projects happening all over the school.

Lower Elementary School under-croft play area: Mid-December – Late-January

There has been significant consultation amongst teaching staff, sports staff and designers to transform this area into a space that is a more conducive play area for the students. The initial design concepts are very exciting and they have proposed a play-scape that provides opportunities for exploration and imaginative play and a place where children undertake their own learning through interactions with the environment.

Some of the changes will include resurfacing as much of the bitumen surface as possible with soft-fall flooring, climbing walls, a herb garden, an innovative water play area and much, much more.

Following are artist's renderings of the initial concepts for this space.

Adjacent to this area, work on creating new office spaces for the Elementary Executive team on the ground floor continues. This which will provide greater access to parents and students. This will be completed by January 2018.

Main School Oval – Complete

The upgrade of the oval is now complete and ready for use. The oval is a vital space of our sporting teams, daily play and for some of our annual family and community events. The all- weather surface has been completely replaced and the playing surface has also been

extended giving us a total new area of 5,670sqm. It will be guaranteed for 10 years and a rigorous maintenance schedule will be put in place to keep it in a good condition for as long as possible.

Gate 3 Reception and drop-off – Complete

Our new Gate 3 Reception area has now opened along with new Drop-off / Pick Up Area. The new Parent Café is also open for business and includes a great outdoor area looking out over the small oval.

Junior School Canteen – Complete

Construction of the Canteen is now complete and we are now just waiting for final permits to operate so we can open the doors and start serving.

Small Gym – November 2017

Renovations continue in our Small Gym, which is used daily for our PE and sports programs, as well as representative sports competitions. This is a complete refit of the space which will include a new sprung timber floor, a complete refresh and modernisation of the current decor (carpets, seats, auditorium lighting), sound-proofing of walls and new air-conditioning system.

Coral Dixon Theatre – January 2017

This is one of the most significant renovations we are undertaking this year. The current theatre which was completed in 2002 is undergoing a complete refit. This will include new seating, carpets, lighting, audio visual equipment, air-conditioning, soundproofing and increased staging. The Theatre is one of the most well-used spaces in the School so we look forward to seeing it completed and back in use.

Should you have any questions regarding the schedule of works I would encourage you to speak to our  Parent Helpdesk Team.
