200 days till a new era at Calrossy begins

The countdown is now on till the launch of the exciting new Diamond School model for 2021 with only 200 days to go until the doors open on Calrossy’s new $4.1m Multi Use Classroom Block.  

Calrossy has adopted this innovative structure to provide for whole school learning which will provide academic excellence at every stage of the educational journey from Prep through to Year 12.   Our Year 7,8,9 students will be taught in single gender classes specifically supporting the needs of young women and men with designated learning spaces for science, Creative Arts and technology. The Calrossy Brisbane Street Campus will become a dedicated Senior Campus for Years 10-12.  This Senior campus will be designed to equip senior students for Tertiary studies, entry into the work force and life beyond school.

The Calrossy Board, with input from our academic staff, have been focusing on the implementation of the Master Plan for the future of Calrossy.  Our Multi-Use Classroom block is due for completion in October 2020.  The Master Planning Committee recently met with key stakeholders to plan the next phase which will also include outdoor learning areas due for completion in the next 4 weeks. Committee Chair Hugh Castleden said overseeing significant development of our two campuses along with our boarding facilities is vital to provide state of the art facilities for our students and academic staff into the future. The realisation of this innovative school model in 2021 will see three learning centres designed to provide success and growth for students at every stage of the Primary and Secondary school journey.
