Students, teachers and staff from Victor Harbor Primary School will be beginning the learning year with a brand new building.
The architecturally designed facility, which was allocated $3.5m, will replace the 8 classrooms that were destroyed by fire and will house students and teachers from years 5 to 7.
Designed with consultation from local Ngarrindjeri elders, the building incorporates symbols and colour schemes that reflect the school’s long standing focus on Aboriginal perspectives across the curriculum.
The building, which consists of 8 flexible learning areas and 2 serviced learning spaces, can be adapted and reconfigured to allow for team teaching and integrated learning.
As part of the upgrade students will also have access to a STEM and an Arts, Design and Technologies learning area.
