The Sports Centre Redevelopment project is well underway with many final touches being added in coming weeks. Once complete, the Sports Centre will be a high-class sporting facility and home for the St John’s Dragon’s. This modern facility will not only provide opportunities for our students but the wider Forest Lake community and sporting organisations to benefit and enjoy.

See below the latest updates:

  • The hall is now fully glazed with all wall finishes complete.
  • Installation of the lift is complete with testing scheduled for Tuesday
  • The floor and tiling in the canteen have been finished
  • Student amenities fully fitted out
  • Glass walls installed on upper level
  • Ceilings and walls on the upper level nearing completion
  • Installation of joinery for staff workstations and meeting room has commenced
  • Carpet tiles are due to go down next week
  • External pathways and landscaping has commenced

We are thrilled to be sharing this new sport precinct with our community. Donations, large, regular or small, are still required from the College Community to bring the vision of the new Sports Centre to reality. Help us reach our goal or find out more information CLICK HERE.
