This replaces the existing centre on the same site and is set amongst native trees on the spacious, natural grounds of the Pakenham Campus.
The modern curriculum calls for flexibility in building design and the new centre offers some fantastic features which will greatly enhance our Year 9 teaching and learning.
These include a lecture theatre with retractable seating, a large exhibition multipurpose space for events like ‘Personal Best’ night, passive recreation areas, multipurpose classrooms for art, technology and science and classrooms with breakout spaces. There’s a ‘green room’ for multimedia projects and connected indoor/outdoor areas.
In line with one of our Learning that Matters principles of caring for the environment, there will also be rainwater harvesting systems and a large solar installation as well as energy-efficient lighting and environmental controls.
