Snowy Mountains Grammar School (SMGS) is further expanding its facilities in 2014 by adding three new classrooms for senior students and improving equity of access across the school site.
SMGS Principal, Andrew Bell said, "The school is engaged in an ongoing program of facility growth and improvement. In 2012 we constructed our new Junior School, with classrooms, amenities, play areas and a kiss and drop zone.
"Now we are complementing that work by constructing three general purpose learning areas (GPLAs) for our secondary students. At the same time, we are improving equity of access at the school by linking the upper and lower levels with disability access pathways.
"The new building has been designed for the school by local architect, Jeff Robinson. Having worked with Jeff before, we know that he would deliver a structure which complements the unique feel of the school, provides state of the art facilities for students and is environmentally sound.
"We are also delighted to be working again with local builder, Owen Plum of Plum Constructions, who previously completed the Elizabeth Cornish Library Building for the school."
At a cost of about $700,000, the new classrooms are jointly funded by the school and by the federal government through its major capital works program. The new classrooms and access routes will be completed for Term 4, 2014.
