Looking to the future
Refurbishment of our chapel is underway; an outdoor PLC “wedding garden” on the north side of the Dorothy Knox Centre; child friendly sensory landscaping in the junior school and a new look dining room. We also wish to remodel the administration and staff work areas of PLC Armidale.
Opened September 2012
The girls have been enjoying the new facilities.
Primary Schools for the 21st Century
Opened March 2011
A grant for $850,000 was awarded to our Junior School. We will build a new library and replace demountables with new classrooms. The library will be at the far end of the Crest Rd building and will look out onto the grove of trees running alongside the Crest Rd fence, where our girls enjoy playing. The new classroom block will be where the demountable is within the Junior school grounds. We will also build a covered deck area leading from Buchan Cottage to the new building. Work will commence in Semester Two, 2009.
The Armidale Trade Training Centre
Opened March 2010
PLC Armidale is in partnership with The Armidale School to offer a range of vocational subjects to students from both schools, as a trade training centre.
PLC Armidale will offer a Certificate III in Commercial Cookery as well as Hospitality Operations. A new commercial kitchen is being built on the PLC Armidale site for a total budget of $1,000,000. The kitchen will provide a great resource for the school as it will open into the Dorothy Knox Centre (DKC) providing a venue for functions. It is expected the kitchen will be completed by December, 2009. It will link with the Senior School library with a covered deck and have a forecourt where coffee and snacks can be served.
