First Stage of Cape Naturaliste College expansion complete
April 23, 2019
Cape Naturaliste College students will soon enjoy a brand new Performing Arts Centre and upgraded Business, Science and Engineering facilities. This was part of a three-stage, $32 million expansion that commenced in early 2018.
The high school has been fitted out with cutting edge technologies and functionality designed to enhance teaching and learning. Associate Principle for Years 11 & 12, Rob Nail, says “the capacity to serve student activities is superb.” The new additions include interlinking prep areas and classroom placement that invites collaborative research and design environments.
“Everyone who has visited the school has been blown away by the standard of the new facilities and the quality of the build. Prospective parents, education department representatives and community members walked away excited about the opportunities for our students”.
Stage 1: The first stage of the expansion was completed in March 2019 and is now in use by students and teachers. This stage included two new buildings which housed faculties for Science, IT & Business Studies, and Design & Technology.
Stage 2: The Performing Arts Centre is due for completion in Term 2 this year and will open with an in-school production called Wildlight, by Drama Teacher Anna Couzic.
Stage 3: The third and final stage of upgrades will see ugrades to the Administration and Office buildings and will be complete by the start of school in 2020.
