This $6.2million upgrade for St Joseph’s School in Murray Bridge enables the school to accommodate year levels 8 and 9 as part of their ‘Reception to Year 9 Education Plan.’ Parts of the existing site were demolished to make way for the new, two storey purpose-designed building featuring eight new learning areas across both levels.
The scope also included a new entry plaza and nature-play landscape to the front. The design of the building is uniquely and intentionally linked to the town of Murray Bridge and some of its pre-existing architecture, but with a modern look.
