Building Program Update

If you have visited the school recently you would have seen that very little of the Forum now remains and the area is very much a construction site! It is exciting to finally see our building program started with a timeline set for relatively quick completion of both significant facilities. The Performing Arts Centre and new canteen will be ready for the 2017 school year and the new multipurpose gym by the middle of the year. The original funding for the gym was only for a basketball court sized facility. This has recently been upgraded to a netball court sized facility, with additional funding provided by the Department to make it a bigger stadium with greater functionality. I am still working with the City of Kingston on a potential joint use agreement with a financial commitment from Council for the possible expansion of our stadium from 1 to 2 courts. Sport and Recreation officers have been authorised to work with Mordialloc College to scope and prepare a costed stage 2 concept plan (addition of second court sometime in the future), to draft a joint use agreement and develop a funding strategy. This is then to be reported back to Kingston Council to be voted upon.
