Dear St Michael’s College Community,
We are excited to announce the Primary Stage 2 building project at a cost of $8m with building works expected to commence in Semester 2 this year. The project includes:
Two new classrooms modelled on our new Reception classrooms and breakout spaces, including wet areas to support a variety of key learning areas. It will also comprise of a staff preparation and both boys and girls toilets. Stage 2A will be completed prior to the beginning of the 2023 school year.
The new two-story building includes a Performing Arts Centre comprising of a Music Centre, six Music Tutorial rooms, and Dance and Drama rooms, which will provide a specialist facility rarely seen in a Primary environment. The ground floor will also incorporate a new Canteen.
The first floor provides four additional modern classrooms with breakout space for our Year 5 and 6 students. A new Visual Arts learning area will also be included in this upstairs space. Stage 2B is expected to be completed prior to the end of the 2023 school year.
We will also take this opportunity to increase our student toilet facilities which includes the redevelopment of the southern toilets and additional toilets adjacent to Founders Hall.
This project will provide further developments to specialist facilities, coeducation and caters for the increasing enrolments at the Primary Campus. The College, through its Mission and Vision, strives to provide an inclusive environment where individual growth is achieved through engagement, opportunity and recognition, underpinned by a positive learning culture that is authentic, challenging and supportive. The College continues to be committed to providing outstanding learning outcomes for our students.
I would like to thank the College Board for their contribution and support with this exciting project.
We look forward to working with Edge Architects and Sarah Constructions during this building program.
Mr Damian Patton
