At the February 2020 meeting the Board of Governors gave the go-ahead for the development of a new sporting excellence precinct at College, with the project name of Upper West relevant to its position on our campus. The above image is a conceptual design for the building.
It has been a productive and rewarding few months working with architects from Architectus New Zealand to create a concept for a multi-purpose sports facility that reflects the scope of the project and meets our requirements. The major element of Upper West is a multi-functional sports hall, the size of two full basketball courts, as well as strength and conditioning facilities, teaching spaces, an erg room, changing rooms, offices and equipment storage.

At this stage, we hope the Upper West project will commence sometime in Term 4 2020 and be completed by the start of the 2022 school year. Our commitment to the boys is at the heart of everything we do and this new facility will help take our sports, health and wellbeing programmes to the next level.
Thank you for your ongoing support of this project. We can’t do it without you.
