A significant step in the rebuild of Geelong High School took place last week with the official turning of the first sod by Geelong MP Christine Couzens.
Ms Couzens congratulated the school and local architects McGlashen-Everist for the innovative design that also manages to respect the proud history of the school as Geelong’s first government secondary school.
This event marks the commencement of a long awaited rebuild that will see the construction of contemporary educational spaces to match the high standard of teaching and learning already occurring at the school.
The rebuild will take just over two years due to the clever scheduling of works in three stages to minimise the impact upon students and the curriculum program.
Stage one will see the construction of a new dance and music facility, a new Year 7 complex and a total refurbishment of the C.A. Love Hall, all of which will be completed in time for occupation for the commencement of the 2018 school year.
Stage two, in 2018, will involve a major rebuild of the Kroger Wing, including construction of a new library/resource centre on the second floor.
The final stage, commencing in the second half of 2018 and concluding mid-2019, will involve refurbishment of the Vague Wing to create a contemporary arts facility and refurbishment of the top floor of the Winstanley Wing into a new Senior School space.
