Oakhill College is committed to an ongoing Master Plan. While tradition and a simple, rural, family school charm are all cornerstones of Oakhill College, we must offer contemporary learning spaces which are designed to deliver modern ways of learning. 

To embrace technology as a tool for research, learning and communication, Oakhill College needs to upgrade and enhance our current science and technology facilities, which includes science labs that have not been significantly upgraded since being built in the late 1960s. 

We are thrilled that we have committed to the College Master Plan, having engaged the services of BVN Architects, to commence the design of an inspirational and modern Innovation Hub and MostynCopper as the Project Mangers for the planning and delivery phases of the development. This will house both Science and TAS faculties, offering our students a state-of-the-art learning environment. 

The proposed Innovation Hub will provide spaces for hybrid (timber, fabrication and robotics), computer, graphics, science and laboratory spaces. This will offer an experience of schooling that will prepare our students to thrive in our rapidly changing world, as well as empower them to explore new ideas, reflect and become knowledge-creators with their peers. The Innovation Hub will provide a suite of state-of-the-art labs, facing into the centre of the school site. Incredibly and coincidentally, after all these years, the science and technology labs will be on the same footprint as the original science building built around 1938. 

The proposed Innovation Hub will be built on the northern side of the campus between Quentin and the De La Salle Building on the western end of the car park located off Armidale Crescent. Oriented towards the heart of the campus to the south, the design has been developed to reduce potential impacts on nearby residential properties. 

We are currently going through the process of submitting feedback on the proposal. Our design shows our planned building subject to approval and once the design phase has been finalised, construction is expected to commence in the first half of 2021 to be ready for occupation early in 2022.

Our Master Plan includes connecting the College via a multitude of accessible walkways. 

The current driveway will continue through the College and lead to the Innovation Hub which will open out onto our courtyard. Oakhill walk will meet the Innovation Hub, with the Ceremonial walkway connecting the cemetery.

A new lift will also be installed at the back of the Solomon building allowing complete pathway access throughout the College.
