“This is an exciting time for students and our wider community. The works underway throughout the school campus are delivering generational improvements and are setting a new benchmark for our local education facilities.

“The new performing arts centre will become a focal point of the school and provide opportunities never before available to local students. Through innovative shared-use arrangements, the wider community will also be able to benefit from this dedicated performance facility,” said Minister Stokes.
