A new $100 million state-of-the-art secondary school will be built in Whyalla to accommodate 1500 students in years 7 to 12.
The new school will be located on Nicolson Avenue in Whyalla Norrie in between the UniSA and TAFE campuses, forming an education precinct to provide students with strong links to further study options.
The school will replace Whyalla’s 3 existing high school campuses - Edward John Eyre High, Whyalla High and Stuart High.
Significant stakeholder consultation was undertaken by the department to inform plans for the school. The new school has been designed to reflect contemporary education environments and will focus on supporting future skills needs that lead to jobs.
Key features of the design include:
- 3 storey build with a STEM focused design
- contemporary learning spaces, multi-level outdoor learning and social spaces
- plaza at ground level with landscaping
- a double court gymnasium, expansive sporting fields and courts that can be utilised by the community
- performing arts theatre and outdoor amphitheatre.
Cox Architecture, in collaboration with Thomson Rossi, designed the school so that it would integrate the history and traditions of the existing high schools while creating its own sense of identity and belonging that will embrace the whole community.
Construction started in early 2020 and the school is scheduled to open in term 1, 2022.
