Our plans for the development of a Performing Arts Centre with the $1.337 million allocated in this year’s state budget have now been approved by the department and the project has been put out to tender. We will be interviewing next week. Once we appoint an architect firm as the Principal Consultants, the planning stage of the project begins, including the schematic design and development. Following advice from the Region that we must use existing space, the new centre is to be located where the current Forum space is. Such a central location puts it in a prime position to be a feature of the school, along with the Hub and Discovery Centre. To do this we are relocating the senior study centre and offices. In response to feedback from the Senior School team, work has already begun refurbishing D1 and all the connecting office spaces into a VCE study centre.
