Our much awaited new Senior Centre has now risen from the ground overlooking our athletics track and North oval. Due to open by 2014, this new landmark building will boast 20 state-of-the-art classrooms and a cafeteria which will seat 250 students and staff.
Much attention has been given to the need to address modern teaching and learning styles. The building will have a tertiary feel; with the corridors lined on one side by glass walled rooms and on the other by break-out spaces that will promote both collaborative and individual learning. A sizeable space has been devoted to a silent study area.
Once completed, our Year 11 and Year 12 students will have a wonderful facility in which to learn and study and from which they will be able to enjoy views which will extend out over Port Phillip Bay.
172 construction days have been completed, with the project now at 60% completion.
Total contractors onsite has increased to an average number of 25 per day with a peak load of 33 on one occasion. A new site shed has been added within the last few weeks to cater for the increased number of workers. The additional contractors are placing pressure on the parking lot at Gate 7 and student parking has again had to be relocated to the Detmold parking area and to the area adjacent to International House. This arrangement will need to be in place for the remainder of the construction project.
Construction site as of 10 May 2013

Our new Junior Gymnasium is now open, much to the delight of our younger students and our PE staff. The ECC students literally squealed with delight when they used the building for the first time, while the Junior students were impressed with how light and spacious the building is.
