There are two projects happening at Benalla P-12 College:
- Round 3 Inclusive Schools Fund project
- 2016-17 upgrade and modernisation project
ROUND 3 INCLUSIVE SCHOOLS FUND PROJECT
We’re building a socially inclusive outdoor area that includes a playground specifically built to support the needs of all students in the middle years (Years 5 to 9). This will be set in a sensory garden which will allow for slow and reflective play, and include hammocks, cubbies, visual art and sound play. Raised garden beds will help define smaller spaces for discovery, and be used to grow plants for touch, taste and smell.
Detailed designs will be developed in consultation with the children and the school.
The Inclusive Schools Fund is a $20 million fund over four years, established to help Victorian government schools implement innovative projects that promote best practice inclusive school environments and support the educational and social needs of children and young people with disabilities.
For further information, please see the Inclusive Schools Fund page.
2016-17 UPGRADE & MODERNISATION PROJECT
We are creating new facilities and modernising existing ones at the college.
Upgrading the Faithfull Street campus, will allow the college to relocate their senior school (currently at the Barkly Street campus) on to the rejuvenated site.
We are also demolishing buildings that are no longer fit for purpose on the Avon Street campus.
We have appointed Vincent Chrisp Architects for this project.
We have appointed
Crow Constructions for the project.
Faithfull Street Campus
We have demolished the outdated assembly hall and are constructing a new senior learning centre and upgrading the gymnasium, which will include a weight training room.
A number of classrooms, which are excess to needs, will be removed and the area landscaped to provide better spaces for students.
