The HUB

The construction of the new Warren Integrated Studies HUB is on track, albeit with some minor delays due to COVID-19 impacts. The HUB will be ready for occupancy by the time the majority of students return to face-to-face learning on 18 October 2021.
Due to the ongoing restrictions of COVID on gatherings of people, the official Opening of the HUB on Friday 22 October 2021 by Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC, Governor of NSW and the Dedication by The Archbishop of Sydney, The Most Reverend Kaniska Raffel, has been postponed to 20 June 2022. This date is of course Foundation Day, a very appropriate day to celebrate the opening of such a significant building. 
In addition to opening this $13.5m facility, this delayed date will also allow the School to officially open Stage 2 of the Integrated Studies Precinct, the Beavis Mathematics Rooms and the new Visual Art Studios. This $2.5m redevelopment of Stage 2 brings the final project to $16m. 

This webpage outlines the vision for our new Warren Integrated Studies HUB and the wider Precinct in which it is placed. This new building, along with the facilities in Stage 2 will enable our students to learn, work and create in their areas of interest to new levels of sophistication.
Our aim is to develop young people of character and intellect who look to the future with optimism. The Warren Integrated Studies HUB underpins that aim by offering facilities that will enable our student to develop their unique gifts and talents to the very highest levels. This milestone project will transform opportunities for our students for many years to come.

Features of the Integrated Studies Precinct

This precinct has been designed with significant input from the faculties of Science, Mathematics and the faculty of Technology and Creative Design. It will provide an innovative teaching and learning space fit for the demands of 21st Century learning. Through the creation of these dedicated spaces, the School intends to build on current initiatives and underpin the academic success of students within the scientific, technological and artistic disciplines.  

The precinct itself is to be considered a teaching tool for students in environmental sustainability as well as innovation, engineering and entrepreneurial skills. Operational elements and structural elements will be exposed and labelled to show students the functions of design, engineering and environmental factors and how they interrelate.

Once the Integrated Studies Precinct is fully open it will contain:
• 5 Science Laboratories including one Senior Science Laboratory
• 1 Science Preparation Room
• 1 Agriculture General Purpose Learning Area (GPLA)
• 4 Design and Technology workshops
• 1 Textile and clean design studio
• 3 Information and Computing Technology GPLAs
• A Design Store and Preparation Area
• A Seminar Room
• Staff Facilities (23 teachers across 3 Faculties with 6 ancillary staff)
• 6 Mathematics GPLAs
• 4 Visual Arts Studios

In addition a wonderful art galary has been designed for future construction to cap of this area.
