Welcome to Our New Science Centre
St Peter’s Girls’ School is delighted to launch our new Science Centre.
Featuring three purpose-built laboratories for the pillars of Science – Biology, Chemistry and Physics – and four general laboratories, this transformational facility will cement Saints Girls as a national leader in STEM education.
The project has also given rise to an expanded Visual Arts space, a new Junior School Art hub and upgraded pool facilities.
With South Australia at the forefront of technology, particularly in defence and now space, there has never been a more important time to ignite in our girls a spark for Science.
The official opening on Friday 18 October 2019 featured an inspiring speech by Australia’s Chief Defence Scientist Professor Tanya Monro and other powerful highlights:
Our previous Science facility is being transformed with a new IT hub, a dedicated space for media production, as well as additional new classrooms for our Junior School. Following those upgrades, classrooms along the Junior School corridor will be refurbished and new breakout spaces will be created including plans for a deck overlooking Ferguson Park.
The Science Centre is the latest project in the School’s Master Plan, The Next Challenge: Building for Tomorrow, which was launched in July 2015. Other achievements include expanding our Early Learners' Centre, increasing parking spaces and access to additional sporting facilities in Bell Yett Reserve, installing high speed network services to boost online learning, building a new Middle School and opening a new Library.
Truly, there has never been a better time to be at Saints Girls.
