Dynamic new Senior College centre for 2021
Senior students are one step closer to inspiring new facilities, with plans confirmed for the redevelopment of existing K-2 facilities to create a new home for the Senior College for 2021.
These works are part of the second stage of the school’s Master Plan to deliver first class Next Generation Learning facilities K-12.
Students have been thriving in the innovative redevelopment of the English and History B block opened in 2018. This new project relocates other senior facilities to the heart of the school campus, creating a sophisticated and supportive home for our emerging adults as they prepare for life beyond school.
The reconfiguration and refurbishment of existing K to 2 buildings will feature:
• Senior College (Y10-12) administration centre
• Year 12 study centre with digital collaboration zones
• Year 12 common room with large kitchenette
• careers and international programs offices
• dynamic senior learning spaces
• new bathroom facilities
• Social Sciences department office
Design principles include sustainability, cutting edge technology, contemporary design, natural materials with simple colours and textures, complemented by controlled natural lighting and flexible, adaptable furniture.
Well designed and revitalised landscapes will cater for senior students and include seated terraces and verandas giving the Senior College a mature, university feel.
The new Senior College centre responds to the school’s ongoing commitment to next generation education and high quality resources to meet a broadening curriculum.
CCGS was successful in securing $2M in funding from the Federal Government to support the redevelopment. CCGS community members past and present also contributed to the project during the Junior School Capital Appeal which included a new K to 6 junior school facility, sports grandstand and amenities, also opening at the start of 2021.
