Golden Grove High School’s students will be enjoying the fruits of their labour thanks to immersive work experience opportunities on the school’s $15.5m state-of-the-art redevelopment, which is now complete.
More than 300 students in years 9 to 12 were involved in the stages of the project from beginning to end, including initial design discussions, learning about construction practices and career opportunities from apprentices working on the ground, and development of the curriculum supported by the new facilities.
Principal Peter Kuss said the school is very excited about the endless opportunities the new learning spaces will provide to the students at Golden Grove High School.
“We're particularly excited about the middle school building which provides contemporary learning spaces that will facilitate our learning design and team-teaching practices.
“The student immersion program for this project was extremely successful and has given our students a real sense of ownership over the new facilities and curriculum that will be taught in these spaces.”
Some year 10 students also completed their work experience on the building site with a particular focus on the landscaping and outdoor learning spaces, a key feature of the design.
The carefully landscaped courtyards complement new and existing infrastructure and provide a diverse range of indoor and outdoor learning opportunities.
Designed by architects Brown Falconer and built by Shape Australia, the contemporary learning centre and new performing arts and year 12 study centre provide multi-purpose contemporary spaces for all learning styles and interests.
