An inspirational environment
As part of a 10-year master plan, the layout and facilities at our Armadale campus have been reimagined to inspire and motivate students for generations to come.
Recent developments include the launch of a new Sports and Wellbeing Centre, a redevelopment of our Junior School 5/6 and Prep classrooms, and an adventure playground.
We are currently planning for a new Early Learning Centre, a regeneration of our Music and Performing Arts spaces and the construction of an Inter-Disciplinary Learning Commons.
In Year 9, students live and learn on our Howqua campus in high country Victoria. Boasting a 5-star sustainability rating reflective of its spectacular natural surroundings, lessons range from art held in the outdoor classroom to science taught on the banks of the Howqua River.
Year 5/6 Centre
Completed in 2022, the 5/6 Centre provides light, spacious learning spaces over two levels. Each floor has generously sized classrooms, a common space where girls can come together, as well as quiet areas where students can read or reflect on their learning and feature a dedicated outdoor play area.
Year 7/8 Lilian Bayly Centre
Situated over two floors the Year 7 & 8 Lilian Bayly Centre contains open plan and dedicated learning spaces and is designed to encourage linked learning across the two years. It gives students in Years 7 and Year 8 a unique sense of belonging while meeting the specific learning, physical and social needs of girls in this age group.
Ullmer Sports and Wellbeing Centre
Comprising two new competition-sized netball courts, a weights, yoga and movement room, ergo / cardio room and learn to swim pool, these state-of-the-art facilities will provide girls what they need to continue to grow and flourish, from both a sporting and a wellbeing perspective.
Our hands-on Digital Fabrication Lab, it is an important cross-disciplinary learning space to create, design, problem-solve and engage effectively with STEM concepts.
Early Learning Centre
The new early learning precinct will mean the children and families can move seamlessly from babies to 4-year-old Kinder. The proposed Early Learning Centre (ELC) will feature a refurbished and extended building. The interiors will be updated with new kitchens, bathrooms and carpet, and contemporary purpose-built facilities for three- and four-year-old Kindergarten students.
The ELC will also feature a large natural outdoor play area, which will be an experiential mini-Howqua for our early learners.
