Geelong High School is looking forward to welcoming the next potential generation of alumni at the annual information day on Thursday 21 March.
Principal Glenn Davey said that parents and students will be able to see firsthand the development that has been occurring at the school over the last couple of years.
“In just a few short months Geelong High School will take a step ‘back to the future’ as it reoccupies the newly refurbished Kroger wing,” Mr Davey said.
“Parts of the Kroger building date back to the original building established on the site in 1910. The Kroger wing, well known to Silver Gull Alumni, has been completely renovated to transform the ageing classrooms into contemporary student spaces fit for 21st Century learning.”
Mr Davey explained that the original internal courtyard is now a soaring internal space ideal for small and large group collaboration and performances, and the highly valued school library has returned to its original position with vistas of Ryrie Street and East Geelong.
“The school has already occupied stage one of the rebuild which consisted of a new Year 7 learning centre (and) refurbished C.A. Love Hall with attached music and dance studios.
“Stage three, due for commencement in mid-2019, will see a new arts facility in the Vague Building and a refurbishment of the Winstanley Wing including systems and VCE centre.
“Come the commencement of the 2020 school year, Geelong High School will have state-of-the-art facilities to continue the long tradition of outstanding education which, according to the school motto Vitae nos parat, ‘prepares students for life’.”
