Saint Stephen’s College reveals major $14M expansion.
Saint Stephen’s College is thrilled to share that Burling Brown Architects have been appointed the lead architect in the design of the Junior Hub Building. The project is a testament to our long-term partnership with the team and their commitment in delivering innovative and inspiring educational spaces. The new building will be the hub of creativity, featuring flexible learning spaces that encompass music, technology, and STEAM education. The students from Prep to Year 6 will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in interactive learning and tinkering spaces fostering curiosity and imagination. The Junior College will have its very own reception area, as well as break out spaces conducive for learning and collaboration. To cater for the growing needs of the College and community there will also be a brand-new uniform and bookshop in the design. For outdoor activities, we have designed a multipurpose green playground that reflects the quintessential Queensland lifestyle with sub-tropical overlays, lush landscapes and interactive and sensory play-based solutions. The space not only allows for recreational play but also provides educational opportunities for students all year round. We are excited to get this project started, with construction scheduled to commence late August this year. Our dedicated construction team is committed to delivering the project with excellence and aiming for completion approximately mid-2024. Principal Janelle Anderson says “We are delighted to see this project come to life after years of planning in the pipeline”. “The new Junior Hub Building will benefit our current and future students and families, as well as the wider Gold Coast community continues to grow and develop”. “We are so proud to continue to invest in the growth and development of Saint Stephen’s College and look forward to sharing our progress with the wider community”.
Saint Stephen's College community attended the ANZAC Day March and Service at Upper Coomera to honor those who served our country. It was heartening to see so many members of our wider college community in attendance. A special mention goes to SSC Voices for leading the singing of hymns and the Australian and New Zealand national anthems, as well as to the Senior Drumline for their excellent performance on the day.
Lest we forget.
In recognition of their outstanding achievement, we celebrate Saint Stephen’s College Students Brayden Tanti, Kris Peng, and Michael Burlace for being finalists in the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Australian titles. In 2023, the under 22 age division had three thousand entrants, placing our students amongst the top 30 in Australia. A special mention goes to Brayden Tanti for winning the Australian titles. Brayden will now represent Australia in Florida for the World Titles later this year. We would like to thank and congratulate our Director of eLearning, Mr Greg Wilkinson, who received a certificate of Microsoft Office Specialist Outstanding Educator and for his ongoing support in facilitating these wonderful opportunities for our students.
The Goda Foundation is the school’s major patron and provides funded ‘real world’ opportunities for our students to build character, position themselves for success and develop a deeper understanding of the world, its people and their part in it.
