Nagle College announces new Master Plan
Nagle College has released the details of their new Master Plan which outlines the projected building works which will be undertaken in seven phases between now and 2029. These new and refurbished buildings, which will be designed by Y2 Architecture, will provide more contemporary and functional learning and teaching spaces.
The first phase of the project includes administration upgrades (which were completed in January 2020) and a new music and performing arts centre with a 300-seat theatre and an increased number of music practice rooms to accommodate the growing number of music students. Additionally, phase one will upgrade the vehicle and pedestrian network, including improved bus flow and a welcome road connection to Peart Street with increased parking.
Phase two of the plan will include a new VCAL precinct to accommodate the increasing demand of Nagle’s VCAL program. Phase three will include new agricultural science facilities, including farm infrastructure, site sheds, and undercover project yards that help students connect hands-on learning experiences in agricultural pathways.
The remaining phases will include refurbishments to existing buildings, including the Humanities wing, staff room and library (phase four); the Maths and English wing (phase 5); the Science and Art courtyard (phase 6) and long-term administration upgrades (phase 7).
“We are excited with the new opportunities which these projects will offer our students as they undertake their learning in more purpose-built and functional spaces,” said Mr Neville Powles, Principal.
These new and upgraded learning spaces will provide Nagle students with a contemporary learning environment that will support them to become motivated and reflective learners who show ownership and take action.
