Concept images for the new state-of-the-art $84.4 million Morialta Secondary College have been revealed, giving families in Adelaide’s north east their first look at what this world class school will have to offer.
Designed by Thomson Rossi and Brown Falconer Architects, the brand new build features a performing arts centre, gymnasium, sports ovals and courts, library, gallery, and café, set alongside contemporary indoor and outdoor learning spaces.
One of South Australia’s future-focussed public education leaders, Roley Coulter, has been appointed as the school’s principal.
Previously at the helm of Banksia Park International High School, Mr Coulter is highly regarded for the impact his leadership had in increasing secondary learning outcomes. As well as a track record of delivering strong academic outcomes, Mr Coulter has also demonstrated innovative leadership through supporting cross site professional learning, VET, and flexible pathway options.
Implementation of a new zone, including amendments to neighbouring secondary school zones, has also been finalised following community consultation.
The finalised zone will take in the suburbs of Hectorville and Rostrevor, and parts of Tranmere, Woodforde, Teringie, Montacute and Magill.
The new zones will apply for the enrolment process for students commencing in 2023 at Morialta Secondary College, Marryatville High School, Norwood International High School and Charles Campbell College.
Students with siblings currently attending one of the impacted secondary schools will be given automatic entry to the same school when enrolling in year 7 through the statewide transition process. The new zones may position a residence in a different zone than it is currently. Primary school students will be allocated to the school in their new zone when they apply to start secondary school through the statewide transition process.
