Once the decision was made to relocate, a new school campus was planned and developed off Middle Creek Road. The positioning of the school well off the highway with low traffic volumes past the school, and with a dedicated ‘Kiss & Drop’ zone and bus parking spaces, provided a safe environment for staff and community. The campus included six new General Learning Area classrooms, a new prep classroom, a sports oval, play areas, an undercover tennis court and a resources centre.
The new plans not only provided space and amenity for the initial school construction, but also allowed for the master planned future expansion of the school. A stark contrast to the 100 year old buildings it replaced, the 21st century learning environment of the new school needed to be integrated into the quiet, rural location of the Noosa Hinterland in which it was to serve. With the local community’s focus on environmentally responsible living, the school also needed to contain a range of green features including energy efficient lighting systems, solar hot water and substantial rainwater storage.
