Stuartholme Junior School Building Project Milestone

Tuesday, 30/04/2024 Posted by: Emily Heath

In striving towards educational excellence, the Stuartholme Junior School building project has reached a significant milestone, marking progress in its development. Nestled in the heart of the hilltops of Stuartholme, the project aims to provide an educational landscape for girls in Years 5 and 6. The Junior School offers state-of-the-art facilities designed to inspire and support our young learners within an environment that fosters knowledge, innovation, and curiosity.

Led by our onsite Project Management Team and Builders, the project has been meticulously planned to cater to the evolving needs of the students and staff. From innovative classroom designs to versatile recreational spaces, every aspect has been carefully curated to foster holistic development and academic growth.

Substantial progress has been made to date, with key installations such as cliffside foundations and the fitting of a lift well.

This Friday, we anticipate a significant milestone—the pouring of the ground floor slab for the Junior School building. This milestone holds importance not only for its structural integrity but also due to its substantial thickness, measuring three-quarters of a meter. Given the unique location of our site atop a mountain, logistical challenges abound for our contractors, who must navigate 70-80 smaller concrete trucks to transport concrete up the hill.

In alignment with our Strategic Vision: 2024 to 2027, Stuartholme School is committed to our strategic pillars, with Educational Innovation and Sustainability being two of the four key aspects shaping our Junior School landscape. These pillars are integral to nurturing the thinkers and leaders of tomorrow, instilling courage, compassion, and confidence in our Years 5 and 6 students, who pave the way for Stuartholme School’s sustainable future.
