We are excited that the next two building milestones in Westminster's history will be realised in 2020, with the opening of our new Inquiry and Innovation Hub and Sports Pavilion.
Westminster School will offer students and families even more in late 2020, with the opening of the state-of-the-art Inquiry and Innovation Hub.
The new three-storey building will offer a range of specialised learning opportunities, including engineering, food science, fashion design, and a wide range of arts, maths and science subjects, further elevating Westminster’s curriculum offering through the use of innovative technology and hands-on experiences.
Facilities within the Hub are designed to offer students real-world skills, with specialised technology, robotics and engineering equipment, 10 dedicated science labs, a 183 sqm full commercial kitchen, seven design labs (fitted with computers and a 3D printer), as well as a specialised fashion design space complete with industrial sewing machines.
Additionally, the Inquiry and Innovation Hub holds 21 classrooms, all equipped to offer personalised learning solutions that suit the needs of individual students and the methodology of different teachers, as well as several breakout and collaboration spaces.
With space to design, build, create and collaborate, the Westminster Inquiry and Innovation Hub incorporates flexible learning spaces, breakout areas and world-class facilities to give students the tools they need to achieve more than they thought possible.
The new Inquiry and Innovation Hub is the first stage of an overall transformation of the Westminster School campus, set to be completed in 2021 in line with the schools 60th anniversary.
Westminster School has a proud sporting history and offers an extensive range of sports for students to participate in across a number of disciplines and levels.
To celebrate this, and offer our students even more opportunity, we will be opening a brand new Sports Pavilion in late 2020, that will sit in the heart of our sport precinct at Westminster, adjacent to the Sports and Swimming Centre, at the southern boundary of the Main Oval.
The Sports Pavilion will feature a versatile, multi-purpose, light-filled learning space, that will double as a community function space and a Westminster School sporting hall of fame, as well as a new purpose-built home for the Golden Keys Training Centre, four large changerooms and rooms for officials. Two tiered-seating stands will allow teammates, staff, families and the school community to look out onto the playing fields and support their team.
Sport has long been considered integral to the development, wellbeing, learning and success of students at Westminster School, and with more than 140 teams across 25 different sports, we are proud to offer a wide range of opportunities for students to be involved in the sporting community.
Westminster School currently has three football ovals, four soccer pitches, two softball diamonds, 10 tennis courts, 12 netball courts, four turf cricket pitches and four volleyball courts. The new Sports Pavilion will complement these and form an important part of the incredible sporting programs on offer.
