The School's Building Program realises major projects forecast in the approved Incorporated Master Plan.
Refurbishments and of existing spaces are also systematically undertaken.
For each project, the School Council and Executive Team work with architects, designers and users of the buildings (including students) to develop spaces which are both highly functional and aesthetically pleasing. You can read about our recent and forthcoming projects below. If you wish to support our Building Program, you can join the Foundation or make a tax deductible donation to the School's Building Fund.
Our next major building project will be a new Early Years Centre which will provide beautiful spaces which foster engagement and curiosity within our youngest girls.
A refurbishment of the Joan M Garde Cultural Centre is the primary focus of Foundation fundraising at present. New seating in the balcony, improved heating and cooling and updated audio visual facilities will be key elements in the re-imagining of this space.

This upgrade included the development of a silent study space for senior students, bathroom renovations and the relocation of the School's Careers department and the print room.
