Westminster’s transformative campus masterplan firmly keeps the School at the forefront of education in South Australia and demonstrates a strong commitment to providing students with innovative spaces to learn, create and grow.
“Education practices are constantly evolving. We ensure our staff and facilities are at the forefront of learning and development to shape each student’s future pathway,” says Westminster Principal Simon Shepherd.
Westminster’s state-of-the-art STEAM precinct is the most recently completed aspect of the campus masterplan. The precinct includes the Inquiry & Innovation Hub and Carter Wing, which encompass learning spaces across science, technology, engineering, the arts, mathematics, fashion, food technology and media.
Due to open in early 2022 is the School’s new cultural precinct. The new precinct includes the Forder Centre, Michael Murray Centre for Performing Arts and a new Year 12 centre as well as wide-open social spaces, collectively referred to as Westminster Square. The Forder Centre will offer unique facilities, including a new dining hall for day students and boarders, cafe, new library and feature a level dedicated to drama and music. The Murray Centre is regarded as one of the best auditoriums in South Australia and the planned foyer upgrade and expansion will affirm this well-earned reputation in our community.
“There are many exciting developments on campus at the moment. Seeing the new facilities in action is really special with students demonstrating huge enthusiasm for the new learning spaces. You can see they’re inspired and thriving as a result,” says Pedagogy Coach and Head of Mathematics, Angela Phillips.
The School’s iconic sporting complex now includes the Thomas Pavilion, opened in late 2020. This superb facility provides players and athletes with great training facilities while families and supporters can enjoy one of two grandstands overlooking the ovals. Upstairs, there is an indoor event space with a panoramic view of the playing fields.
On Friday 10 September, families are welcomed to tour Westminster to discover these new facilities, the broad range of academic subject choices and co-curricular activities, as well as find out more about the School’s comprehensive student wellbeing programs. Tours across the School’s spacious campus, during school hours, provide a true insight into the exceptional education offered to each and every student.
Tours start at 9.30am and 11.30am and after the general information session to commence each tour, will be streamed into Preparatory School or Senior School to meet each family’s requirements. Bespoke tours for families interested in Year 7 entry are also available.
