We built a new senior campus for Year 10–12 students at Bass Coast College (formerly Wonthaggi Secondary College) , forming part of an exciting new education and learning precinct in the Bass Coast Shire.
The new campus is purpose-built for adolescent and adult learning, and to facilitate strong connections to the local community. The design includes a two-storey administration and learning building, as well as a games hall, linked by landscaped, outdoor social and recreational areas.
In August 2019, the Victorian Government announced an additional new junior campus for Years 7-9 will be built in San Remo to cater for families across Phillip Island, San Remo and the waterline area.
From February 11 to March 4 2021, we consulted with the Wonthaggi and Bass Coast community on a new name for Wonthaggi Secondary College.
These preferences were used to inform the Department of Education’s final decision on the school name, in conjunction with the guiding principles for renaming school.
'Bass Coast College' received the highest level of community support. The school welcomes students from a large number of primary schools across the Bass Coast Shire. This new name more accurately reflects the school's unique identity, inspires local pride, and makes the school easily locatable across its three campuses.
The administration and learning building includes general learning areas, administration facilities, a library resources area and specialist facilities for visual arts, graphics, materials technology and science. The new school will also have woodwork and metalwork facilities.
A wetland environment, sports field and playing courts to create a strong culture of health, wellbeing and inclusion.
This project, designed by ClarkeHopkinsClarke, was a finalist for ‘Best Secondary School Project’ in the 2020 Victorian School Design Awards.
