PROJECT: St Mary's Maitland Buildings
St Mary’s High School, Maitland senior campus has seen some significant redevelopment over the last decade. Several demountable classrooms were replaced with new buildings as a result of a Commonwealth grant in 2005. The funding provided for a new Technical and Applied Studies (TAS) block, science laboratories, art room and general classrooms as well as pupil amenities and a series of linking walkways between the buildings.
The heritage listed buildings on the site constrained the design of the new facilities to ensure they complement the existing buildings. More recent capital development on the site has included a lift to link the upper levels of the main building which was primarily funded through the Diocesan Family & School Building Levy, and in 2011 some further Commonwealth funding through the Trade Training Centre program to construct a new hospitality teaching facility due for completion in early 2013.
