Work Begins at William Cowper
Exciting news at Calrossy this week with preparation work well underway on the new multi-use classroom block at the William Cowper Campus.
Tamworth-based construction company, P J Truman, is on site and already made major inroads into the preparations for the project.

The $4.1 million prject will deliver fresh flexible learning areas for our students, including a Performing Arts area, Design and Technology classrooms, four Science labs, general classrooms, plus storage prep and student and staff amenities.

The Brisbane Street Campus will become a senior co-ed campus, with students from Year 10 to 12.
