Project Overview

Winner Category 1: New Educational Facility Construction/Entire Educational Facility

“This school, for almost 1000 year 11 and 12 students is exemplary in many ways. It is the first College built in the A.C.T in the past 20 years and the first wholly designed and constructed college by the A.C.T Government. The completed project reflects the thorough planning and briefing process, including extensive research, visits to schools across Australia and wide stakeholder consultation. This focused on how students learn, encouraging interdisciplinary curricula, and promoting a more collaborative approach to learning. Complementing this is the integration of educational and community facilities, co-located around a public forecourt, and a range of carefully designed external learning spaces, together with community sporting facilities.

Well deserved congratulations to Munns Sly Williams Boag, Rubida Research, Jeff Phillips Consulting, and the ACT Education and Training Directorate and Gungahlin College.”
