The main build of Stage 1 is the central ‘portal block’. On the site of the demolished north-south wing of B Block. After a range of delays, you can see the framing going up for this new block which will include Arts classrooms and the Heads of School offices on the ground floor, and English and Media classrooms and staff workspace on the first floor. Originally planned to be finished for the start of Term 4, this building is now scheduled for completion over the school holidays, for use for the beginning of 2018.
The other parts of Stage 1 are mostly completed, although a range of finishing details are still being done. These works have included:
• Construction of a new Special Education block (currently being used by art classes)
• External strengthening of the outside of A and B Blocks
• Extension to Library for new Careers and Storage rooms
• Construction of toilets and changing facilities for the gymnasium
