The Cathedral School’s site possesses some unique and extraordinarily beautiful natural features. The composition of the natural Lagoon, cathedral-like Rain Trees and looming views of Mount Stuart provide a memorable experience which is, in essence, a magnificent setting for a Learning Environment.
The Master Plan holds utilization of these natural features at its core in order to enhance the pervading spirit of the place.
— It focuses upon providing community spaces for sub groupings by developing various precincts, each around its own courtyard space, typically anchored by significant Rain Trees.
— In turn, it provides identifiable linkages to connect these precincts, viz. Pedestrian Spine such that the entire school community can be strongly interconnected.
— It provides a central location for the new Cultural Precinct which will become a focused Learning Hub for the entire school community.
— And ultimately, it refocuses all of these elements onto one principal focal space by opening them all directly onto the Lagoon Precinct (viz Lake Piazza).
These strategies promise to remove the Master Plan from the mere delivery of additional new facilities and place it in a position in which it is possible to create greater spaces for the School Community, which will in turn provide students and teachers with even more effective Learning and Teaching Environments.
These strategies promise to move future development of the Cathedral School into a position in which it is possible to create greater spaces for the School Community, which will in turn provide students and teachers with even more effective Learning and Teaching Environments.
