Arden Anglican School in Sydney is in the final stages of construction of an exciting $21 million redevelopment of its Epping secondary campus. This new five storey building commenced construction in late 2018 and will be opened in time for the first day of school in 2020.
Located on Essex Street in Epping, this redevelopment will allow Arden’s secondary school students from Years 7 through to Year 12 to all be located within the one building for the first time since Arden first opened its secondary campus in 2003.
Principal Graham Anderson said he was confident that both the school community as well as the surrounding residents and local business community would appreciate the school’s new building. “There is great expectation surrounding our new 21st century facilities,” he said, “and we look forward to opening our doors and sharing this new space, which is designed to maintain the vibrant, co-educational and caring Christian approach that Arden is so well known for.”
The new redevelopment will include a Creative Arts Centre, situated right in the heart of the building. This 500+ seat auditorium is where students, staff, parents and the community will be able to gather, celebrate, worship and perform. In addition, there will also be science laboratories, a food technology kitchen, resource centre, technology workshops, multimedia and design laboratories, general classrooms, administration facilities, student services, a basement car park and a rooftop terrace for passive recreation.
The existing building will be refurbished and cleverly integrated with the new construction by architects Stanton Dahl. “We are committed to providing the best facilities possible for current and future generations of Arden learners,” added Mr Anderson.
Arden Anglican School will host an Open Day on Friday 13 March 2020 for prospective families to view this new facility along with the junior school campus, which is located in Beecroft. Any enquiries can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
