Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP and Education Minister Rob Stokes last week announced the redevelopment of St Clair High School, which will include an innovation centre for students to utilise. In June 2014, much of the school was devastated by fire- destroying most of the school's classrooms, computer labs and library areas.
The Innovation Centre’s design is intended to create learning environments that promote collaboration between students and accommodate the latest teaching methods.
As well as 16 classrooms, the Innovation Centre also will feature a lecture theatre, a hub/café area, a large tiered learning space with links to external seating and extensive landscaping. There will be a commercial kitchen for teaching purposes.
"The new building will help serve the needs of our local students, providing access to state-of-the-art facilities which will help students reach their full potential," said Tanya Davies
The Innovation Centre would replace temporary classrooms that have been set up at the site across the school’s sporting field in the aftermath of the blaze. The sporting field will be restored as part of the project.
"I am very proud to have been able to secure the much needed funding to not only rebuild St Clair High but to substantially upgrade the facilities available at the school," said Tanya Davies.
Construction of the redevelopment is due to commence in July 2017.
