Emanuel School has received approval to redevelop an existing, outdated 1970s building to create a state-of-the-art learning centre, doubling the existing floor space.

The three levels of flexible learning space and a new purpose-built Imaginarium will further support the School’s emphasis on innovation and design thinking.

Eight interconnecting classrooms will allow for increased flexibility, with breakout rooms for workshops and focused learning. Additional undercover areas will provide further opportunities for play during inclement weather.

The refurbished building will provide agile and flexible teaching and learning environments which will benefit from sustainable design elements and environmental controls including copious natural light and ventilation. In keeping with the School’s emphasis on sustainabilty, the refurbishment will help reduce our environmental footprint and allow us to adaptively reuse and redevelop classrooms to benefit all.

PrincipalAndrew Watt hast shared that the Development Approval has resulted in JCA awarding the 2021 Capital Appeal to Emanuel School.

He said: “This project is not just about bricks and mortar – this is another step towards creating a school for the future, where the learning spaces support creativity, collaboration, project-based learning and design thinking. Our vision is to deliver programs that will develop skills and mindset that will future-proof our students for an ever-changing, complex and unpredictable world. This building will help create a bright future for the Emanuel School community.”
