Snowy Mountains Grammar School broke ground on Friday 19 November for Stage 1 and Stage 2 of its Master Plan.
Proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with Snowy Mountains Grammar School, the Stage 1 – New Learning Hub will house a wide range of stimulating internal learning facilities, equipped with the latest technology, diverse flexible learning areas, modern science laboratories, a digital technology and robotics room, art room and display gallery, a state-of-the-art design and technology workshop, conference rooms, study spaces and student and staff amenities. A key feature of the design will enable the outdoor spaces to be incorporated into the learning environment.
Stage 2 – the Sports Precinct is fully funded by the School. This area will provide access to more green space and a sports oval, two high-quality multi-purpose outdoor courts and cricket nets, and a shade structure for spectators. The fully-fenced facility will offer potential opportunities to add other recreational and competitive sports in the future. It will also enable us to expand lunchtime play areas, with more room to move and socially gather, all while looking out onto beautiful Lake Jindabyne and the Snowy Mountains.
Principal, Dr Andrew Bell, was joined by SMGS Board member, Lachlan Maclean, members of the SMGS Executive Leadership team, Mrs Kelli Wilson, Head of Senior School, and Mrs Jennifer Thompson, Head of Middle School, student representatives from across the school, including 2022 School Captains, Alexi Cross and Sam Roche, and contractor, Project Coordination (Australia) Pty Ltd.
‘We are thrilled to finally be starting construction on this project. I’m elated for our whole school community, which deserves a high-quality facility where our students and teachers will benefit from a beautiful yet practical and inspiring environment to enjoy now and well into the future’, said Dr Bell during his address to those in attendance.
