St Mary’s Primary School is located within the parish of Ascot Vale, an area experiencing rapid growth. To accommodate the many new families with young children moving into the area, the school chose to use its BER funding to build four new classrooms and a multi-purpose hall.
We worked closely with architects Clarke Hopkins Clarke on this project to deliver a series of contemporary learning spaces that blend seamlessly with the orginal Federation-style structure. The light-filled classrooms open onto a central foyer and the hall features a huge stage area.
A well-designed food prep, cooking and serving area was included in the build which operates both as a canteen during school hours and as a commercial kitchen able to cater for functions. A new 14-place carp park completed the project.
