Sacred Heart College has a long and proud tradition of physical education, sport and sporting achievement. Through its excellent sports program, students from the College have proudly represented Australia in many national events.
The multi-purpose facility is a unique opportunity to support the College’s enviable sporting reputation. The facility is flexible, modern and innovative and caters as a large whole-school assembly space as its foundation but incorporates learning spaces building on and emphasising Sacred Heart’s strong sporting and sport science heritage.
The northern façade of the multi-purpose facility showcases a curved roof as a bold architectural statement. The ground floor of the building incorporates a ‘Hall of Fame’ display area allowing the College to showcase its achievements. Change rooms and weight training area have been provided in the basement, an innovative solution, which saves space on the ground floor and provides direct access to the oval. The viewing stand located on the western side of the oval reflects the materials and rooflines of the multi-purpose facility.
Overlooking Sacred Heart College’s renowned War Memorial Oval project included a new gymnasium, conference, training facilities, weights room, equipment storage facilities and teaching and office spaces.
A modern play on the school’s colours can be seen in the graphics and finishes used throughout. The team paid careful consideration to using robust finishes, such as Corian that can withstand boisterous school children. The scheme incorporates a Wall of Fame, with inspirational past students, carefully curated on our feature walls.
The new facilities are already being put to good use by the college students, sporting teams and wider community.
