With a huge amount of thanks to our PE/Health/Outdoor Ed and Performing Arts staff, we now have plans for the Stadium Extension and Performing Arts Centre (PAC) finalised and are ready to commence tender documentation.
Stadium – The Stadium includes refurbishment of the existing stadium, including new foyer, staff office, lift, stairway, toilets, cladding, and mechanical ventilation system. The extension provides for a new court area with retractable seating ensuring that the whole structure will comfortably seat our whole school. Externally the existing maintenance sheds and change rooms will be demolished, opening up this area for passive recreation and outdoor learning spaces, included in the project.
Performing Arts – The PAC includes 3 separate learning areas separated by operable walls:
The rear area is a tiered learning space with AV and projectors included and seats approx 200;
The centre section is floor space with AV and associated fit out to support performing arts curriculum including the stage apron;
The third learning space includes the stage and wing area and also seats approx 200. All of these can be fully opened for performances. The PAC will also include change rooms, staff study space, foyer area and toilets.
Keep an eye out for more concept drawings to come and find out how you can ‘Sponsor a Chair’ in the new PAC and have a plaque attached to the back of one of the new theatre seats!
Building will commence early next year and will be completed early 2022.
