Multi-million dollar redevelopment underway at St Joseph’s School

St Joseph’s School Hectorville have submitted plans to build a new two-storey learning centre, welcoming the growing demand for their quality education.

St. Joseph’s School in Hectorville is currently in the midst of an ambitious expansion project to accommodate the growing demand for quality education in the area.

Plans submitted through to PlanSA can reveal least 8 more classrooms to be built as part of their ongoing mission to provide students and parents with state-of-the-art facilities.

Over the past three years, St. Joseph’s School have been dedicated to transforming its campus and ensuring that their learning spaces meet the highest standards. As part of their comprehensive development project, the school acquired a neighbouring childcare centre and associated car park, which will be demolished to make way for a portion of the new school building. Additionally, a portion of the existing open space will be utilised for the expansion.

The proposed learning centre will be a remarkable addition to the school, featuring seven general learning areas, a meeting room, a school store, common breakout areas on both floors, and essential amenities. This expansion will enable the school to accommodate a notable increase in students from its current enrolments.

The school aims to have their final project to be completed by the end of 2026, with the facilities set to be in use at the beginning of the 2027 school year.

St. Joseph’s School has been making significant strides in enhancing its facilities in recent years. In 2021, the school celebrated the opening of the Expressive Arts Centre, a two-story building dedicated to fostering creativity and imagination in students. This center provides purpose-built spaces for various forms of artistic expression, including Dance, Drama, Media, Music, and Visual Arts.

The following year, in 2022, St. Joseph’s School introduced the Occasional Care early learning facility. This bright and inviting space caters to children aged 3 to 5 years, offering a modern indoor environment with adjacent outdoor areas for play and activities. This facility is located within the school’s premises, providing a secure and age-appropriate environment for young learners.

In addition to these accomplishments, the school also completed a renovation of its chapel and developed a new building for Year 3 and 4 students where they can view and feel connected to the natural environment outside thanks to the light filled spaces.

The upgrades come off the back of the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools and government investing almost $400 million back into dozens of schools, after the sector hit a milestone in 2023 of 50,000 students.

With all things considered, these upgrades will make St Joseph’s and their community a step ahead for the next generation.
