Campus refresh moves full steam ahead

The refresh and refurbishment projects throughout Clayfield College continue to build momentum.

According to Dr. Andrew Cousins, Principal, “the driver to invigorate and redevelop areas of the campus ensures the best use of current facilities and enhances the environment for student learning.”

Through the support of our P&F Association, Old Collegians’ Association and Foundation, a number of refresh projects have been completed over the last six months including the Assembly Hall refurbishment, Bayview Terrace welcome wall, as well as the tennis and netball court upgrades. And that’s just the beginning, with further projects announced.

Approval has been given for the demolition of Whitesands Apartments, Vacant House and Maintenance House during the June/July school holiday period.

Dr. Cousins says, “while these three buildings may be Clayfield College landmarks, they have reached the end of their useful life. Their removal provides a starting point to modernise and visually open up the campus. At this point in time, the areas left by the buildings will, for the most part, provide additional green space for our students.”

Mr Dan Drewe, Director of Corporate Services adds “the removal of these buildings will provide us with blank canvases for future development.”

“Over the coming months, we will be launching our College’s new Strategic Vision for the period 2022 to 2025. This is the first plan delivered under the innovative leadership of Dr. Cousins, and we look forward to sharing the strategic priorities that will help guide us in achieving our vision.” 

“Building on our rich 90-year history, this will be a period of growth and development for our College, and we can’t wait to share this journey with our Clayfield family.”
