MUNDARING Christian College celebrated the opening of the $4 million, stage two of its Parkerville campus recently.

Hasluck MHR Ken Wyatt officially opened the building on July 27 at a gathering with 250 students, the college community, staff and invited guests.

Principal Rod McNeill thanked all those involved in bringing the project to fruition.

The building, designed by Broderick Architects, incorporates the latest research in learning space design and encourages students’ creativity.

The campus has been designed to capture natural light and use space efficiently to maximise cooling, with a view of the Mundaring Hills.

Year 12 student Devin Carter started pre-primary at the college in 2006.

“Through the years, this college has undergone many changes, and it has been exciting to see this campus develop in front of us,” he said.

“We would have stared in disbelief back then if we could have seen where we would be standing today.”

The project received a $2.75 million loan from the State Government’s Low-Interest Loan Scheme, with a $1.266 million grant from the Australian Government’s Capital Grants Program.

“The features provided in this building are more akin to those which would be found in tertiary level institutions or modern offices,” Kalamunda MLA Matthew Hughes said.

“The integration of technology into the learning spaces at this college ensure that we are embracing the way in which technology can bring people together to generate shared ideas.”
