Wamberal Public School

Central Coast, NSW

The project involved a Major expansion of the Wamberal Public School with the provision of 15 new Home-bases and associated Makerspaces and Withdrawals in a large centralised building. The Central zones of the Building were utilised for communal functions around the active areas and breakout spaces. Each of the Central Zones focused around a circular break out space with natural skylight features. All of the Home-bases have large operable sliding walls to allow for collaborative teaching & future focused learning objectives across each educational Stage. A new Canteen was incorporated into the new Building and existing site linkages were enhanced.

The project encompassed a full refurbishment of support classrooms with new dedicated accessible amenities and laundry facility, as well as an external operable wall and covered hardstand to the existing Hall to provide internal / external flow from the Hall and allow for large groups to be accommodated. Additionally the project encompassed extensive reworking of the Administration building and School entry, providing a new and enhanced street presence and modernisation of the School entry and campus security demarcation. An overall landscape design was incorporated into the Campus and involved new secure Staff and Visitor Carparking. The project was delivered within an occupied school over a 12 month
build programme.
