On Thursday November 3, families are welcomed to tour Westminster to discover their 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.
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.
Opened in 2022, the School’s new cultural precinct includes the Forder Centre, a refurbished Michael Murray Centre for Performing Arts foyer and a new Year 12 centre as well as wide-open social spaces, collectively referred to as Westminster Green.
The Forder Centre offers unique facilities, including a new dining hall for day students and boarders, cafe, new library and features a level dedicated to drama and music. The Murray Centre is regarded as one of the best auditoriums in South Australia and the foyer upgrade and expansion affirms this well-earned reputation in the community.
Westminster’s state-of-the-art STEAM 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.
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.
