A significant milestone in the construction of Angle Vale’s state-of-the-art birth to year 12 school has been met, with external structures and roofing for the new multi-million dollar educational facility now complete and internal works well under way.
The new school, which was named Riverbanks College B-12 late last year, is one of four new South Australian schools set to open in Term 1 next year.
The school will provide world-class education facilities for up to 1675 students and has so far seen 10 contemporary learning environments erected, which will boast a 300-seat performing arts centre, gym, library hub, and early learning centre.
The state government assures air-conditioning, plumbing and electrical works are in full swing and progressing in almost half of the buildings.
Internal lining and painting has also started along with oval lighting, landscaping and outside shade structures.
Education Minister John Gardner said Riverbanks College B-12 will be a world class education facility for local students.
“The construction of this school will accommodate the growing number of families in Angle Vale and surrounding areas, delivering state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities for staff and students,” Minister Gardner said.
