Aberfoyle Park High School is set to officially open $14 million in capital works.

The upgrades include the refurbishment of existing buildings to provide collaborative and contemporary spaces in the middle school, and in the senior school; as well as a new arts centre, front entrance and administration centre.

The 250-seat theatre will enable the school to provide quality music teaching and practice spaces for large performances, as well as a dance studio and music practice spaces. 

“Our students are really going to benefit from the new facilities, particularly the collaborative working spaces,” said Aberfoyle Park High School Principal Marion Coady. 

“The upgraded performing arts centre will allow us to deliver quality music, drama and dance teaching and our students will be able to showcase their talents on the big stage to parents and friends.” 

“The new theatre will provide opportunities for our students to attend year level assemblies and performances that come into the school which enhance their learning and the curriculum.”

The school's green spaces have also been improved by creating flexible, interconnected indoor and outdoor learning areas for the school’s 1150 students. 

The upgrade has been designed to enhance learning by allowing more natural light, more inter-connected spaces and improved accessibility for students, staff and visitors with mobility issues.
