Our World-Class Facilities

Our facilities exist to help bring our Mission and Vision to life.

Our state-of-the-art campus reflects the important balance between form and function. It has been shaped by the belief that learning spaces must meet the needs of students and teachers, while inspiring new possibilities for learning. Our facilities exist to help bring our Mission and Vision to life.

Together, with our architectural partners WMK Architecture, we have realised a bold vision for our learning spaces. Both inside and outside spaces are dynamic and flexible to enhance learning.

Our vision for future classrooms is dual functionality, having the capability to be opened up to allow multi-class learning and partitioned for more focused learning within year groups.

Catering for a diverse variety of users at any one time, all learning spaces are powered by a robust campus-wide Wi-Fi, custom modular furniture, generous windows with natural light, floor-to-ceiling whiteboard walls, and large-screen displays.

The cafeteria, ‘Grounded Cafe’, is at the heart of a central covered outdoor space and is a vibrant meeting place for students, teachers, parents and visitors.

"When I first did the tour at this school I was amazed at how modern and different from any school I've seen before. It reminded me of a university. "

Mitzi, Year 12

"Our goal was to reinvent the notion of what a school building should be and create an environment that actively shapes a new culture for learning. "

"My favourite space within the school is Manhattan, as it is a calm and quiet environment during study periods and helps me focus more. During breaks, it is a welcome reprieve from the noise and chill of the outside environment. "

Connor, Year 12

New STEM Centre comes to life 

More classrooms, new laboratories and hands-on learning space coming soon

In 2023, our three-storey Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) Centre began construction. Featuring nine cutting-edge laboratories, four classrooms, two seminar rooms and a staff room, the centre is a key addition to our campus and will be completed by the end of 2024. Also included is an external greenhouse and extensive landscaping.

The installation of an extra 58kW of solar PV panels augments the existing 100kW solar PV system.

Beautiful green playscapes and lighting, and a bridge linking the STEM Centre to the Sports Centre and main Manhattan building ensures that the centre maintains a seamless flow of connectivity and design integrity.

The completion and opening of our STEM building is expected in Term 4, 2024.

 

Building a sustainable school

Our commitment to sustainability is evident in WMK’s award-winning design.

Fundamental to the design is a sequence of multi-level pavilion buildings beneath a spectacular 3,000sqm intelligent ‘living’ structure which generates energy through an 80 kw solar system, harvests rainwater, and cools the spaces below. WMK has also designed for maximum use of natural light and ventilation, and windows and louvres in the building and canopy are automated to provide ventilation in direct response to climate conditions using a sophisticated Building Management System. This ensures we reduce our environmental footprint.
