The first day of Term 2 at St Joseph's Nudgee College has produced excited whispers and gazes of wonderment with the practical opening of the highly anticipated DJ Hanly Learning Centre.

The new facility is located at the centre of the school campus to ensure the prominence of academia at the College is well represented.

For ease of access between related areas, the new centre features the College library, IT and AV services, the Learning and Teaching Team, IT Labs, Year 7 learning spaces, a giant chess board, the tuckshop and a large covered outdoor space.

These areas are located across four interconnected levels to accommodate learning activities for use on an individual scale through to a large community gathering.

The facility will be a hub for Middle School, as well as a common space for presentations, meetings, social activity, unstructured learning and games.

Nudgee College Principal Mr Peter Fullagar says the centre reaffirms the importance of learning, teaching and academic endeavours to the culture of the College.

“The facility and all the services it provides will be of great benefit to many boys for many years to come,” he said.

Construction of the Learning Centre commenced last year, with the aim of the design being to engage the senses through design, space, intellect and art, thus improving learning outcomes.

On Wednesday 6 May, the College will celebrate the official opening and blessing of the DJ Hanly Learning Centre, as well as the Bathersby Boarding Village by Archbishop Mark Coleridge.

The Nudgee College community is welcome to an Open Evening event for the Learning Centre and Boarding Village on Wednesday 13 May from 6.00 pm. More details to follow.
