ABOUT THE PROJECT
The new Armstrong Creek School is an exciting social infrastructure hub, which seeks to maximize community engagement and encourage out-of-hours use of the school facilities.
The inclusive school provides new facilities, combining primary (P-6) and special (P-12) school elements under one governance model.
The primary school accommodates 400 students and the special school accommodates 208 students.
As part of a review by the Department of Education and Training to improve provision in Geelong, Oberon High School will also be relocating to the Armstrong Creek School.
We appointed Clarke Hopkins Clarke as architect for the project.
We appointed Watpac as builder for the project.
The Learning Communities Victoria (LCV) consortium, who are delivering this school, bring together outstanding expertise and public private partnership experience. Other than the builder and architect, the LCV partners include Amber as sponsor, Spotless as facilities manager and YMCA and CERES as community partners.
The school has been designed with the local community in mind and will be a gathering place for local families and residents to enjoy community, arts, sports and recreation programs.
The new facilities at Armstrong Creek School will include:
- A Community Hub which will be used by the school during the day and activated by the YMCA for before and after school care and other community programs after hours
- An indoor gymnasium built to Netball Victoria standards
- An indoor half-court gymnasium
- Outdoor hardcourts and sporting fields
- Sensory gardens, sensory rooms and sensory pressure poles
- A range of multi-purpose and flexible spaces, including conference, therapy and interview rooms
The school will also boast the latest in environmentally sustainable design and CERES will run its environmental education 'ResourceSmart' program.
We have undertaken extensive communication and consultation with the community to ensure the new school will meet their diverse needs, including the needs of students with disabilities and mainstream students.
A Local School Reference Group has been established and will play a key role in supporting the principal to arrange ongoing community engagement activities.
Evan Savage has been appointed as the principal. He can be contacted on
Enrolments are open.
The Department of Education and Training have developed an enrolment plan and Designated Neighbourhood Boundary for enrolments at Armstrong Creek Education Precinct.
This boundary is for the primary school component of the school only and does not reflect the Designated Transport Area for students with disabilities.
