Green light for Upper West

Work on Upper West – our contemporary, multi-functional sports centre – is under way.

If all goes to plan, our facility will be in use in Term 4 2023. However, we anticipate Upper West will likely open at the start of 2024. A temporary bridge has been installed from Hagley Park across the Avon River so that construction materials and equipment can be delivered to the College grounds.

The two-storey, multi-purpose centre will include two full-sized basketball courts, an erg training room, a fitness centre with changing facilities, classrooms, and meeting rooms. It is designed to cater for our boys and the wider community for generations to come. Our unique site ensures that Upper West will be a focal point for College, offering a host of sporting opportunities for our boys.

Christ’s College Executive Principal Garth Wynne says he appreciates the community’s ongoing support in bringing the project to realisation, adding that the new centre will be “a great addition to our facilities”.
