New Multi-purpose courts open
18 October 2023
St Andrew's Anglican College has opened the next stage of its m asterplan, with a new multi-purpose courts complex and underground parking facility.
The development, which began at the start of this year, was officially opened by the Mr Dan Purdie, State member for Ninderry and College Principal Reverend Chris Ivey on Monday 16 October 2023, while students and parents enjoyed being the first to use the new facility with games of netball and soccer.
Replacing an existing grassed area, the impressive facility boasts 6 full-sized courts on an astro-turf surface, and is a welcome addition to the College’s sporting program, as well as providing additional space for Primary students during morning tea and lunch.
Sitting beside the College’s world-class Aquatic Centre, College Principal Reverend Chris Ivey said the development created an impressive recreational precinct.
“We are thrilled to introduce these new facilities to our College community,” he said.
“It marks a significant milestone in the College’s commitment to enhancing educational and recreational experiences for students and the community.
“The multi-purpose courts will assist in developing community and teamwork through the endless opportunities a facility like this provides.
“We look forward to watching our students prosper and above all- have fun on these new courts.”
Underneath the courts, a new underground car park, providing 100 parking spaces is also a welcome addition for the community.
The next stage in the College’s master-plan is due to start mid-way through 2024, with Stage 1 of a Performing Arts Centre (PAC) and new main administration building, to be contructed towards the front of the College.
This will be followed by a Future Learning building for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM), estimated to commence in 2027.
