Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

THIS year’s Hill­son Beasley Award for Ed­u­ca­tional Ar­chi­tec­ture went to Scotch Col­lege for its mid­dle school build­ings, de­signed by ar­chi­tects Tay­lor Robin­son.

Scotch Col­lege head­mas­ter Dr Alec O'Con­nell said the col­lege was proud of its new mid­dle school com­plex.

“Re­ceiv­ing the AIA award for the best ed­u­ca­tional fa­cil­ity is an out­stand­ing endorsement,” Dr O’Con­nell said.

“The award is fur­ther vin­di­ca­tion of the work that went into en­sur­ing the de­sign was both con­tem­po­rary and sup­port­ive of the ped­a­gog­i­cal and philo­soph­i­cal driv­ers that are cen­tral to our mid­dle school.

“The fa­cil­i­ties pro­vide mod­ern and vi­brant learn­ing en­vi­ron­ments that both en­hance and en­cour­age col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween stu­dents and teach­ers through­out their learn­ing jour­ney."

Church­lands Se­nior High School also re­ceived an Ar­chi­tec­ture Award for its Year 7 in­te­gra­tion into the se­nior high school, de­signed by Bate­man Ar­chi­tects.

Pres­by­te­rian Ladies’ Col­lege re­ceived a com­men­da­tion for its li­brary and cafe­te­ria ad­di­tions, de­signed by MCDF Ar­chi­tects.
