Calrossy Master Plan
The Master Plan Committee have been extremely busy working with our project teams on the Multi Use Classroom facility, shortly to be constructed on the William Cowper Campus in 2023. This design complements the building that opened to students in 2021 and will incorporate general purpose classrooms, music rehearsal spaces, our Independent Learning Centre, a Year 7 – 9 office, staff rooms and 350-seat tiered amphitheatre. Our building will be constructed on the existing asphalt basketball courts and serve as a link between the Junior School and our Calrossy 7-9 spaces. Construction has already commenced on the William Cowper Campus Car Park and is due for completion within months. This project will deliver an extra 177 car spaces with kerb, guttering, asphalt, lighting, connecting pathways and landscaping.
Other minor upgrades and developments have continued including the new Sport Courts on the William Cowper Campus and upgrades to existing facilities in all parts of the School. With the Brisbane Street Campus celebrating 100 years at Calrossy House this year some minor work will enhance the campus for senior years. We remain committed to providing excellent classroom environments for all students.
Throughout 2022 and continuing into this year the Master Planning Committee has been collecting information to guide the planning for years ahead. Included in discussions is Boarding (both on Brisbane Street and Simpson House, incorporating facilities for boys and girls) and the Tangara Trade Training Centre, looking into how this magnificent facility might support the School of the Future.
A full version of the Calrossy Master Plan will be released to the School community in 2023, providing excellent teaching and learning resources and developing our campuses as places of belonging and community, serving the learning needs of students into the future.
