Educating young women of the future requires the infrastructure to match. Ave Maria College boasts state-of-the-art facilities and contemporary learning spaces, to maximise the learning potential of all students. In 2017, the College embarked on a four-stage architectural Masterplan led by Ave Maria College alum and Hayball architect, Marissa Cavalchini. The ambitious plan breathed new energy into the College community by redeveloping a 1960s two-storey building into a modern three-storey learning centre that reflects our evolving identity as a contemporary place for young women to thrive. We provide functional spaces for both collaborative and individual learning.
Our purpose-built classrooms are fully integrated with digital capabilities. Research areas and dynamic indoor and outdoor study hubs provide students with the flexibility to tailor their own learning experience.
Sustainability and reduced energy consumption are factored into the overall design of all our award-winning facilities. Our focus on low energy lighting, eco-friendly air-conditioning and natural cross-ventilation, ensures we safeguard and future-proof our stunning facilities for generations to come.
Our learning environments reflect the College emphasis on design-thinking, STEM and enterprise skills. The facilities are intended to spark curiosity and encourage students to seek new knowledge and skills with the view of opening pathways to emerging
professions through classroom transparency, collaboration and engagement.
All classrooms, students and staff are fully connected, with facilities and devices embedded in learning activities. Learning drives the use of technology, rather that the other way round. The College intranet and Sharepoint platform allows for remote access, parent access, staff and student uploading and submission of work and student collaboration. At the same time the College recognises the need for technology free zones and times, which allows for differing modes of learning and wellbeing.
