St Mary’s College New Kindy and Administration

As School Architects for St Mary’s College in Broome, Engawa Architects was engaged to design and deliver the first stage in a six-stage master plan redevelopment; a new 3-stream Kindergarten, new Staffroom and alterations to the existing Administration building. The Kindy brief required a dynamic learning facility that supported interactive self-guided learning experiences and supported staff to easily manage student behaviour. Small touches like the ‘kid-size’ door at the main entrance demonstrates Engawa’s understanding of young students and has been a huge hit with kids as well as providing some light relief with transition and detachment issues. The main indoor classroom areas are directly connected to outdoor teaching areas and a large secured play area including bike tracks and nature play areas. The new Staffroom has provided a professional and beautiful space which has enhanced staff interaction. All the project outcomes were achieved within a fully operation school environment and delivered on time.
