ABOUT THE PROJECTs
The final stage of the College's performing arts centre, Ulumbarra Theatre has recently been completed.
Ulumbarra Theatre was developed through collaboration between the College, the local council and the architect. It is housed in a former Gaol on the College grounds. The 1000 seat 4-star theatre has Dance, Drama, Music and Hospitality spaces, and serves both the College and the surrounding community. The College surrounds the Gaol, hosting 1,800 Year 11 and 12 students.
The project recently won an Association for Learning Environments award for Best Rennovation/ Modernisation.
A new building project has begun at the school, following the completion of the theatre. This new building project is a $6.2 million upgrade. Relocatable buildings will be removed, existing buildings refurbished and maintenance works undertaken.
The project is currently in the construction phase with the first stage due to be complete in December 2017 and second stage due to be complete in April 2018.
The project will see the Alexander Wing block refurbished with a new library, VCAL centre and learning areas for psychology, humanities and health.
A further $2.8 million was committed in the 2016-17 State Budget to cover remaining costs on the Ulumbarra Theatre project.
