Upgrade and Modernisation - Block A
About the project
We are continuing to upgrade Kensington Primary School. Our latest project will modernise heritage Block A by upgrading general purpose classrooms for students, and deliver a new reception and administration area for staff. A new passenger lift will be installed to service the southern end of Block A and provide access to some of the upper-level classrooms.
The project will also build a new student toilet block, a covered walkway and a new gathering space to bring the community together.
These facilities will provide contemporary and more innovative spaces for students to learn, play and grow in.
When a school receives capital works funding for the first time, they work closely with the VSBA, architect and other relevant stakeholders to create a masterplan.
A masterplan lays out the future infrastructure needs of the school. It separates it into individual stages depending on their most pressing needs. Each stage is then subject to possible future funding as it becomes available.
The masterplan below shows what is currently planned for the future of Kensington Primary School, dependent on future funding and subject to change.
In the 2021–22 State Budget, the school received $7.365 million.
