Upgrade and Modernisation
About the project
We are upgrading and expanding Bayswater Secondary College to provide modern and functional learning environments equipped for 21st century learning.
This school is part of the Bayswater Education Plan, which is inspiring and supporting children and young people in the Bayswater community to aim higher and achieve more at every stage of their learning journey.
Learn how education plans offer extra support for students to reach their full potential.
In the 2020–21 State Budget, the school received $12.433 million.
Both middle and senior year students at Bayswater Secondary will have access to revitalised learning facilities through two new learning hubs. Each hub will include flexible facilities to cater to the wide variety of students’ educational, social, and well-being needs.
New facilities will be arranged by year-level grouping and include spaces for integrated science, technology and art learning. Students will also have access to new locker areas.
These buildings will have operable windows for natural ventilation, with CO2 sensors in place to provide all classrooms with an alert of when windows should be opened.
College principal Liz Swan says, “I believe that a local school should reflect the needs and aspirations of the community it serves. Our community contributed to a design that provides flexibility within a structured setting that facilitates an environment in which all students can learn and thrive. There is something for everyone in the new build.”
Newly created undercover areas in both learning hubs will allow for further opportunities for students to learn outside. These outdoor informal learning areas provide students new ways to learn throughout the seasons.
Staff will also use these spaces to circulate between the hubs.
