Work is about to start on a major new Year 9 centre for Beaconhills College’s Pakenham Campus.
The $5.7 million project is jointly funded by the College and a $2.865 million capital grant from the State Government.
Member for Gembrook, Brad Battin, was at the school last week to turn the first sod of earth on the building works, after the College Board accepted a tender to start works. The new building will be ready for the start of term 2, 2018.
Headmaster Tony Sheumack said the new Year 9 centre was a long-awaited project. The original centre, which opened in 1996, had served the College well but was well past its intended life-span.
“I am proud of the fact our Year 9 program was the first dedicated, on-campus program of its type in Victoria,” said Mr Sheumack, adding that the new buildings offered some “fantastic features” to greatly enhance Year 9 teaching and learning.
These include six general purpose and two specialist classrooms, a large multipurpose area for lectures, exhibitions, student/parent meetings and assemblies, areas for music and AV productions and extensive landscaping.
Children from the College’s early learning centre, Little Beacons, regularly use the grounds for the bush kinder ‘Early Explorers’ program and the area will be redeveloped to create an attractive natural habitat.
The centre also includes rainwater harvesting systems and a large solar installation as well as energy-efficient lighting and environmental controls.
