Watch us Grow – New Multipurpose Classroom block concepts released.
The concepts for Calrossy’s next multipurpose classroom facility have finally been released and they are very impressive.
The newest development to be built on the Calrossy William Cowper site consists of a two-storey classroom block incorporating specialised classrooms for Music, offices for Calrossy Yrs 7 – 9, administration, Independent Learning Centre classrooms and general purpose rooms. The most exciting inclusion in the design, however, will be a 350-seat indoor theatre/auditorium for use by Calrossy 7-9 and Junior School students.
The new development will be located adjacent to the School’s most recently constructed multi classroom block, which was completed in 2020.
Calrossy is delighted to support local businesses and employment with this project with the contract for construction awarded to PJ Truman Constructions Tamworth. Work is scheduled to commence later this year and it is hoped it will be completed early 2024. The GHD Group, also based in Tamworth, is partnering with the school in the construction, overseeing the engineering of the project.
“We are pleased to continue a strong working partnership with JP Truman Constructions who were the builders of our 2020 building. Calrossy is committed to the support of local business and infrastructure, promoting the growth of our region and partnering with those in our local community, with which we have belonged for over 100 years,” said Robert Faithfull, Calrossy’s Chief Operating Officer.
With enrolment numbers continuing to grow, Calrossy Principal David Smith said, “The classroom block will be a worthwhile addition to Calrossy’s teaching and learning spaces for students from Kindergarten to Year 9. It will also provide additional theatre space for use across the whole school, with specialised areas for Learning Support, Music and performance”.
“It comes alongside the final upgrading and sealing of internal roads and the car park on the William Cowper Campus, which will be ready for use later this year” said Mr Smith.
Calrossy is grateful for the work of the Calrossy Foundation in supporting this project and funding from the Federal Government, who will contribute $980 000 to the construction of this additional facility.
