two projects happening at Fountain Gate Secondary College:
- Upgrade & modernisation project
- School Pride & Sports Fund project
UPGRADE & MODERNISATION PROJECT
We are redeveloping Fountain Gate Secondary College. We will refurbish and expand the existing technology facilities to deliver a new STEM centre.
We have appointed ClarkeHopkinsClarke to design this project.
The works will provide the college with purpose-built learning spaces that promote creativity, innovation and critical thinking. The design responds to the school's priority to provide innovative curriculum that allow students to explore new and emerging sciences and technologies.
A range of flexible and adaptable learning spaces support different modes of learning; including grouped learning neighbourhoods, quiet reflection spaces, a central gathering and breakout space, a meeting room with resources zone, integrated staff workspaces, and outdoor learning areas that provide enhanced indoor/outdoor connections.
SCHOOL PRIDE & SPORTS FUND PROJECT
The funding is being used to help upgrade the school’s weights room. This project is being led by the school, and we are helping them plan and coordinate the works.
As part of the Education State vision, the Victorian Government has set a goal to increase pride and confidence in government schools. The School Pride and Sports Fund is one way of achieving that goal. Funding is provided for upgrade projects totalling under $1 million, which will help students, teachers and the community to feel proud of their school.
The fund also helps ensure more new gymnasiums are competition grade and can be used by community sporting clubs.
