Broughton Anglican College, Menangle Park – New Infants School Precinct

The fourth stage of work with Broughton Anglican College is the establishment of a new Infant School Precinct which links to the newly completed Junior School building, Student Services and Hall Extension projects.

Perched on an embankment looking back across the secondary campus; the new construction will see the addition of 18 classrooms for Kindergarten and Years 1 & 2, across three repeated single storey module buildings, each focused around its own Village Centre common area. The infant school precinct was developed as a response to the steeply sloping site, with the repetition of the module buildings used to follow the contours of the site and as a means to connect and integrate into the existing built school infrastructure. The buildings take a domestic scaled approach, while the use of natural finishes help to minimise the institutional environment for young children.

Each module building comprises interconnecting pentagonal GLAs, which provides a fifth wall for display and learning opportunities, while direct access is maintained between each GLA, Village Centre and Verandah external play space.
