Description

This proposal sought to establish a master plan for the site and a staged development program to align with the schools anticipated growth over the coming years. The proposed master plan was designed to complement the schools existing layout and its rural surroundings. Carinity purchased the subject site, being the former School of Today site, in 2015 with the intention to establish a new Special Assistance School. The school follows Carinity’s existing ethos and provides an alternative education for students who have become disengaged from mainstream schooling or struggle within a traditional school environment. As part of the proposed expansion of the school, student numbers are to increase to a maximum of 84 students and 13 full time equivalent staff. The expansion of the existing facilities on the subject site provide additional classroom buildings, improved recreational facilities, new service access and car parking areas.
