New building project on the horizon

Exciting times ahead! We are in the final planning stages of our first extensive capital works program since we opened at our current location in 2001!

The proposed works will see:

  • 6 new classrooms
  • construction of new toilets
  • break-out areas between classrooms
  • removal of the demountable buildings
  • expansive sealed area for play and school assemblies.

The new building will be constructed on the slopping land adjacent to our current Kindy classrooms, meaning the children will not lose any grass or play areas. It will also see some brick archways removed allowing more natural light, into the paved areas.

We are in the fortunate position of being able to fence off most of the construction site, leaving the rest of the school unencumbered by the construction work.

With children on site safety is paramount. We are working with the Catholic Diocese of Broken Bay (CDBB) to develop a management plan for the project.

The plan will address areas such as access, safety for students, changes to parking, temporary relocation of classes and noise management.

We will continue to update parents and carers through compass, and the wider community is encouraged to follow us on Facebook to be kept up to date.

All going well with procurement of materials, and weather permitting, the build will start early next year and take around 12 months, ready for students at the start of 2024.
