$10 Million School Upgrade - Building Improvements

Planning is underway at Salisbury High School as the first stage of their upgrade.

Plans are being considered and reviewed in line with the transition of year 7 into high school by 2022.

Among the upgrades being considered for Salisbury High School are:

  • Additional learning areas for capacity where required.
  • Demolishing transportable buildings near the carpark entry on Farley Grove to make way for a new facility with a prominent street frontage.
  • The new building will provide contemporary learning spaces for art, home economics and languages with connection to flexible outdoor learning spaces.
  • A new covered walkway from the new building will link to the school’s existing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) building.
  • Landscaping to various outdoor spaces across the school.
  • Upgrading the main building and administration area.
  • These plans are subject to further consideration and may change.
  • Other plans include landscaping to various outdoor spaces across the school and upgrades to the main building and administration area.

These initial plans are subject to further planning and may change.

I am very excited to announce that our new STEM area is opened and operational.

The refurbishment has provided state-of-the–art spaces for innovative learning. Further developments in the form of murals and displays will continue to enrich these learning spaces.

This $2.5m STEM works initiative has created an exciting space that we aim to extend and duplicate throughout the site. These contemporary facilities will support cutting-edge teaching and learning approaches to help prepare students for future jobs in a range of industries.

Importance of STEM skills

75% of jobs in the next 10 years will require STEM skills.

The STEM Works program will give our teachers the specialist facilities they need to:

  • inspire innovation and creativity
  • stimulate imagination
  • challenge student
