Lourdes Hill College has launched its Master Plan for 2017 and beyond.
The Master Plan provides a blueprint for infrastructure projects over the next five years and builds upon the significant infrastructure upgrades which have been occurring at Lourdes Hill College over the past 10 years. All projects aim to strike a balance between optimising teaching and learning spaces on our campus, and ensuring our approach is environmentally sustainable.
Recent Master Plan Projects
In addition to a series of renovations to existing classrooms and amenities and upgrades to indoor and outdoor seating areas, the following infrastructure projects have recently been completed:
Senior School Hub
As an innovative College, we are proud to continue stepping forward to meet the changing needs of our twenty-first century learners.
The Lourdes Hill College Senior Hub, established in 2015, is a contemporary space designed to help Senior School students prepare for life beyond school.
The university-style facility was developed in response to research findings stating that today’s senior secondary students respond well in a learning environment that allows them to be both independent and social.
The facility includes a kitchenette and a range of independent and collaborative working spaces, allowing students to interact and learn in a more social environment than the traditional library.
The Hub also includes a careers centre, an academic mentoring centre and a mini conference space for larger group meetings and presentations.
This five-storey state-of-the-art building houses a 470 seat auditorium, science centre (including seven laboratories), performing arts centre with specialist high-tech drama and music classrooms, eight Middle School general learning classrooms, tuckshop, roof-top play area and administration facilities.
Chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes
The Chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes is the jewel in the College's crown. With seating capacity for up to 160 students and directly overlooking the Brisbane River, adjacent to heritage-listed Duhig Hall, the new Chapel's modern design references both the College's history and future.
Stella Sports Centre
The personal health and wellbeing of our students, staff and wider community is integral to our sustainability as a College. This modern outdoor facility, covered by a 1360sqm curved steel roof, houses two full size multi-purpose courts. In conjunction with the Good Samaritan Centre, this facility houses the College's land-based Health and Physical Education and sporting program and is fitted out to support competition netball, basketball, tennis, volleyball and futsal.
