St Philip’s Christian College Active Learning Centre



The modern, 4-storey Active Learning Centre incorporates a large indoor multi-sport court space, ninja gym and climbing wall facilities, dance and drama studios, weights and gymnasium facility, musical rehearsal spaces, related amenities and change facilities, end of trip staff facilities, staff and student learning and well-being areas, covered outdoor play areas and cantilevered walkways and viewing areas linking the spaces around the central indoor court area.  

The Active Learning Centre’s purposeful design reflects the College’s ethos; that every student has access to excellent learning resources and is taught in the best learning facilities available.  

The state-of-the-art facilities were delivered safely in a live operational environment – ensuring the continuity of school life with minimal disruption. Skilful stakeholder management in conjunction with rigorous safety standards ensured the project’s success.
