Salvado’s new facilities to enhance learning skills

03 April 2023

The Salvado Catholic College community will benefit from new art and science learning spaces, thanks to the latest upgrade in Salvado’s ongoing expansion project.

The college community, Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) representatives, and guests gathered for the blessing and opening of stages 3, 3a and 3b of the college’s construction project on Thursday, 16 March.

Dr Sayce, during her official opening address, acknowledged the important partnership between CEWA and Federal and State Governments in ensuring families in WA continue to benefit from school choice.

‘Funding was made possible with the support of a $12.4 million State Low Interest Loan and a $2.1 million Commonwealth Capital Grant. Salvado has been able to upgrade ground floor facilities, with students benefiting from new science laboratories, a science, technology, engineering and mathematics laboratory, project and equipment storerooms, and a laboratory preparation space.’

Future upgrades will include a visual and fashion art studio, a food science laboratory, a design, technology and materials workshop, a new toilet block, storage area, outdoor covered student work areas and two hard courts.

The college will be equipped with an E-learning resource centre which has two student workrooms, a media pod, an audio-visual pod, an information communications and technology pod, two performing arts spaces with storage areas and, six general learning areas. There will also be two staff collaboration areas.

‘Together these spaces will mean students and teachers at Salvado are teaching and learning in a modern school environment which gives them the opportunity to explore their God-given gifts and develop the skills needed to contribute to their communities when their time here is done,’ Dr Sayce said.
