An Educational Precinct
The educational and pastoral precinct is defined by the geography of the North Sydney site. This includes the parish, church, pre-school, primary school, secondary school and any other services, such as OOSH.
The educational network embraces the broader collaboration of three nearby schools (St Michael’s Catholic Primary School, Lane Cove, Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary School, Clifton Gardens and Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, Mosman) working closely with the schools of the North Sydney educational precinct to ensure the effective transition of students to Marist College at Year 7.
Transition and Construction
Capital works will provide contemporary learning and recreational spaces. Building will be phased over time to minimise the impact of construction on academic and wellbeing outcomes for students. In the initial phases, existing facilities will be refurbished to support the introduction of co-education at Marist College North Shore.
Facilities and Design
The Steering Committee is now moving to a master planning phase where specific facilities will be designed. It is too early to preempt the designs, however it will be driven by an educational brief, which will draw on expertise across the system of schools. A sub-committee of the Steering Committee has been scanning national and internal research to inform the brief.
Any new facilities will be light, flexible and tailored to support the learning needs of our young people, similar to those of the newly completed St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.
