St Brigid’s Primary School & Hall Opening

Alan Palmer and Maia Close represented Morrell Architects at the official opening of new facilities at St Brigid’s Primary School, Raymond Terrace.

Students of the school provided a guided tour of the new classrooms, refurbished library and new multi-purpose hall.

The heritage setting of the completed facilities provided certain design challenges, however, there was general agreement that the new works complimented the existing St Brigid’s Church (1862) and the original Catholic school building constructed on the site in 1880.

Ray Collins, Director of Schools for the Catholic Schools Office, remembered, as a Year 3 student at the school, making the transition from the original school building to the newly constructed classrooms designed by the architect G. P. Gannon.

The existing hall and school buildings have a special association with the local Catholic community of St Brigid’s, related to its use by the church and by the school, by both current and former parishioners and students.

It was agreed that the facilities, in particular the new hall, were successful in reinforcing this special association.
