We are extremely excited to share details of our Capital Works Project to aid the transition of year 7 students into secondary school in 2022.
The school has been assigned $13.8m for the construction of a new building as well as the refurbishment of some older spaces to support contemporary learning.
At the start of Term 4, 2020, Brighton Secondary School took handover of Stage 1 of the Capital Works Project. The oval realignment and construction of our new volleyball courts has been completed and students have already commenced using this newly finished resource.
Refurbishments will be taking place on the upper floor of the Spence wing of the school, which is the oldest building on the site. The refurbishment works will take place from Monday 2 November 2020 until the start of Term 1 2021. Once complete, the refurbishment will provide:
- 6 general learning spaces updated for contemporary learning.
- A learning common for classroom breakout.
- A fresh staff preparation space designed to bring teams together.
From Monday 2 November 2020, both levels of the Spence wing of the school (which is the oldest building on the site) will be closed for refurbishment on the upper floor of the building. Staff and students have received information on room reallocations for the remainder of the year. Students with lockers in these corridors will need to empty their lockers this week and carry their bag to class from next week.
From Monday 16 November, the lower level of the building will reopen for students to be able to use their lockers again, however, students upstairs will need to carry their bags for the remainder of the year. We have a limited number of spare lockers across the rest of the site, which students can request access to via Student Reception during this period if they require a locker for this period.
Our new building is expected to be completed mid 2021 and has been specifically designed for use by our Middle School students. It will be located along the north perimeter of the school between the Volleyball Stadium and Performing Arts Centre.
Across 2 levels the contemporary learning building will contain:
- 12 general learning spaces.
- 3 STEM labs.
- A Maker Space to further STEM learning.
- Think tanks.
- A gallery and forum space.
- Learning commons and breakout areas.
- Teacher preparation spaces.
Landscaping will also be undertaken around the new building and additional bicycle parking installed.
This portion of the project is progressing well and we are excited to see the building starting to take shape.
