Kingsway auditorium opens
KINGSWAY Christian College has opened its $12 million state of the art auditorium.
Construction on the 900-seat theatre started in April last year. The new building boasts computer-controlled LED lighting and digital audio systems.
Trans Media Alliance theatre consultant and parent Rob Scott worked on the design and believed it was the first purpose-built 100 per cent digital audio, video and lighting theatre in Australia.
He said LED lighting was energy efficient and reduced electricity costs, while savings were also made by using digital audio, and instead of projectors, the theatre features LED video panels that can be used in any configuration.
The project was jointly funded by the school and the State Government through the Low Interest Loans Scheme, with $700,000 contributed from fundraising.
“Our auditorium project sees the culmination of many years of hard work and foresight by board members, parents and staff,” principal Peter Burton said.
Music students performed at the official opening this month, which also featured guest speaker Tim Costello, who is chief advocate for World Vision.
