New school builds speed past halfway mark

19 January 2021

External structures and roofing for the new multi-million dollar schools at Angle Vale and Aldinga are now complete, with internal works well underway, marking a significant milestone in the construction of the state of the art educational facilities.

The schools, recently named Aldinga Payinthi College and Riverbanks College B-12, have both risen from the ground at great speed, stirring awe and excitement amongst their communities. They are two of four new South Australian government schools set to open in term 1 next year.

The builds will provide world-class education facilities for up to 1675 students and has so far seen 10 contemporary learning environments erected, which will boast a 300-seat performing arts centre, gym, library hub, and early learning centre.

Air-conditioning, plumbing and electrical works are in full swing and progressing through to completion stage in almost half of the buildings. Internal linings and painting has also commenced along with oval lighting, landscaping and outside shade structures.

Work is now underway to shape the school’s brand identity, and applications for enrolment will be open in the first half of this year.
