Major Building Development

As our school community flourishes, so must the learning environments!

Our school purchased the property on the corner of North Street and Newcut Street, allowing for additional space for a new major building development to go.

The new development will have 8 classrooms that are larger than our current learning spaces, breakout spaces with the latest technology, toilets, and lockers inside. It will also be home to our OSHC/Vacation Care and provide private areas for Allied Health professionals to work within (Occupational & Speech Therapy).

We are particularly excited about the design of the build as it will be:

  • Light filled & spaciousSpaces that have access to daylight and outside views so that there is a feeling of spaciousness
  • Flexible & Adaptable – Spaces that can easily adapt to different users and functions so that the facility can fulfil its potential
  • Sustainably Engaging – Environmentally responsive, and intelligent building with minimal resource consumption and impact on the environment. A building that talks to the occupants, responding to the external and internal environment conditions.
  • Cost effective & Robust – Construction detailing that provides robustness and minimises maintenance without creating a harsh, institutional feel

In 2023, our St Joseph’s community have already had a glimpse of these gorgeous, light filled spaces with the rear of the complex finished and occupied by three of our Year 3/4 classes. Students can view and feel connected to the natural environment outside, and thus inspired for learning.

We look forward to the development fully opening soon.
