183 McCrae St Purchase
In early 2019 the residential property adjoining the grassed play area was purchased. This has been a strategic and important tactical acquisition and addition to the school grounds and is the focus of the first stage of the school’s masterplan.

It is with excitement that we can share that tender documents were issued to selected builders by Van Bree Architects last week. This is another significant step forward in the project, with these documents signifying that all planning and preparation work is complete. The project will now move towards securing a building contractor with the view to begin demolition and construction works prior to the end of this year. It is estimated that based on current timelines that works will be complete around June 2021.
Along with the tender process the project control group are working through two additional activities. A project to name the new building will begin early in Term 4 while a fundraising activity is planned to support the completion of the landscaping and other items required. Stay tuned for more information on both of these.
How can I ask questions or make suggestions?
A Project Control Group (PCG) has been established to manage the objectives of the learning space and identifying preferred use, manage the budget, work with stakeholders (primarily Bree Architects) in the design and construction, and to manage communication across the school community.
The group is made up of:
- Daniel Gooch - Learning and Teaching Lead & Client/Project Management
- Kendyl Hopley – Client/Project Management
- Kimberley McSweeney – Communications
- Jessie Crozier – Financial management
- Brock Pinner – PCG Chair & Communications
- Bree Architects (Jo and Joost Van Bree) - Architects & Project Management
