Prep School specialist and Year 3 building
The School is very pleased to announce the development of a unique precinct in our Preparatory School to provide our students with the stimulus and learning facilities to help them develop inquiring and creative minds.
A new space at Churchie for inquiring young minds
A launchpad for curiosity and creativity
Build commencing in 2020.
Year 3 precinct
- three interconnected classrooms
- a learning plaza
- withdrawal room and bathroom facilities.
- two visual art classrooms and one maker space
- exhibition and display space
- outdoor learning courtyard.
Inspiring and developing young minds through
The new two-storey building, located beside School House, will accommodate two new Visual Art Classrooms and an exhibition space, which will centralise the delivery of this curriculum area in the Prep School. The ground floor will have an exciting new concept—a maker space—a multipurpose learning area with various technologies and tools for exploration and practical activities such as science and robotics.
On the first floor will be three Year 3 classrooms, with a large break-out space for collaboration, project work and group learning as one cohort. This cohort precinct model is the first step of a design approach that Churchie is applying across the Prep School. It's an exciting learning precinct that our students will love to be in.
Given the Prep School's successful adoption of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme in 2017, the new creative precinct and specialist area has been designed to foster the attributes of an IB learner.
Make an impact
Churchie is seeking to raise $3 million for this exciting project. As a community, we have worked together in the past to bring to life other substantial precincts such as the Sir John Pidgeon Sports Complex and The Centenary Library. Our students benefit immensely from these facilities.
We're asking for your contribution to this project so that your sons, and future generations, can benefit from a vibrant education that affords them exciting futures in an internationally focussed world.
There is a range of donation options you may be willing to consider. These include:
- naming rights for the entire building
- individual room/zone naming rights
- personalised legacy bricks at the front of the building
- donor pavers in the front courtyard
- general donations.
