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. Evan Savage has been appointed as the principal.
The inclusive school provides new facilities, combining primary (P-6) and special (P-12) school elements under one governance model.
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 primary school accommodates 400 students and the special school accommodates 208 students.
The new facilities at Armstrong Creek School 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.
Delivered as part of the $291 million PPP Project which is creating 15 new schools across regional and metropolitan Victoria.
