    • Parry and Rosenthal Architects to design $13.9 million Greenwood College upgrade
    • Modern facilities to include new sports hall, dance and drama area and STEM laboratory 

    Parry and Rosenthal Architects have been selected to design $13.9 million worth of upgrades for Greenwood College in Kingsley.

     

    The project, which is a McGowan Government election commitment, includes a brand new sports hall for students to play basketball, netball, badminton and volleyball, and incorporate a bus shed and car park.

     

    The new facility will make way for important refurbishments across the secondary school.

     

    The existing sports hall will be refurbished for dance and drama classes, complete with a stage and retractable seating, while the current dance space will be transformed into a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) laboratory and staff common room.

     

    The administration block and staff study will also be refurbished, enabling staff and students alike to benefit from the modern new facilities.

     

    These latest upgrades follow the completion of new science classrooms and a refurbished cafeteria at the school earlier this year.

     

    Construction of the latest upgrades is expected to be completed mid-2024.
