New Learning Facility

We are building the future

New Resource, Science, Technology and Creative Arts Building

in 2019, we began the first project of our new Masterplan – a plan that will deliver flexible and inspiring learning spaces for our Joigny (Junior) and Senior students, today and for generations.

It is a visionary plan that sees the School evolve to meet the needs of our students. It delivers spaces that will excite and engage students and teachers, reinforcing Sacré Cœur as a place for academic endeavour and creativity.

The first stage is a state-of-the-art, four level Resource, Science, Technology and Creative Arts Building that will also house our new Joigny and Senior libraries. Replacing an out-of-date 1969 building (that housed Science Labs and the Staffroom), it will sit in the heart of our School.

What will the new building feature?

The four level building will house an exciting mix of learning spaces including:

  • Joigny (Junior) and Senior libraries
  • Science laboratories
  • Photographic, creative and digital technology studios
  • Joigny IT laboratories
  • Breakout learning spaces
  • Collaborative and independent learning spaces
  • An outdoor learning space

Project update

6 May

To make way for our new building and prepare for the demolition of the 1969 building, the Science Labs moved to temporary spaces. With a new staff room scheduled to be built in the current library location, our libraries also moved to a new temporary home. It is a well-planned domino effect!

12 June 2019

The new Staff Centre officially opened. As the old staffroom was located in the building that was to be demolished, it moved to its new home. The new Staff Centre is amazing with spaces for teachers and staff to come together as a whole team for collaborations, work and social activities. As the first new facility for staff in living memory, it has been very well received.

7 October 2019

The playground for our Years 3 – 6 students became ready to use. Now located on the oval, the girls are loving the open space and grass to play on.

15 October 2019

On Monday 30 September, demolition began and the buildings were gone in just over a week. A small team of dedicated workers, one very big excavator, a small bobcat and countless skip bins saw the site cleared. Work took place mostly in the school holidays, and staff and students watched on with great interest. See how the site is progressing through our timelapse video (below).

18 December 2019

The builders are hard at work undertaking the groundworks. With the School closed it is a busy site with the team working hard to get through a long program of works.

28 February 2020

An exciting day as the ground floor slab is poured and the first sign of the curves of the building can be seen.

23 April 2020

Today the first floor slab was poured and the graceful curves, both big and small, are even more evident. Lots of arcs for our students to measure in their maths lessons that will take place in the new building.
