The buildings comprising the Star of the Sea was considered to be the forgotten child in the school community. Having had no major capital works money spent on the facilities in decades it was time for the junior school to have its day. Classroom for kinder to grade 6 were all in line for a major upgrade along with the associated central space.
The concept for the redevelopment was to reactivate the unusable internal gathering pit and to reconnect the buildings with the senior school located across the street. To this end a curvaceous ribbon greeted the student or visitor at the new entry doors and drew you into the heart of the complex. This central space was rebuilt to refocus the school onto a community gathering area with a stage providing access to all classrooms.
