A Connected Centre


The seven-storey Spiritus building incorporates a range of dynamic, versatile learning spaces and studios, designed to enhance cross-curricular learning, further foster creative and critical thinking, and inspire an entrepreneurial mindset.

This outstanding building design is part of a 50-year master Plan for the school, the result of extensive consultation, and responding to the demands of the driving forces in education. In particular, the design is open, yet dividable, flexible, with appropriate constraints. The new technologies housed within Spiritus have accelerated the ongoing digital transformation of the school campus through immersive experiences.

The building includes beautifully landscaped surrounds with accessible walkways connecting Spiritus with the School’s Front Drive, Junior School, Marian Centre and Centenary Hall.

The flexible learning spaces and purpose-built studios enable and foster new pedagogies and methodologies, using equipment and technologies demanded by 21st Century economies and workplaces. We are preparing our students for the evolving world beyond school, equipping them to adapt and thrive within a completely reimagined future.

Workshops, studios & exhibition space

Purpose-built workshops and digitally-advanced spaces accommodate hands-on innovation and encourage self-directed learning. In preparation for the future workforce, we are encouraging our new generation of students to be creators rather than consumers.

Efficient, environmentally sustainable design

In accordance with the school's commitment to environmental sustainability, the design and construction of Spiritus is informed by green principles and innovative, sustainable design features, from the sun-efficient design of the facade, to the future-proofed flexible design of its interiors.

I am reminded of the words of Mother Gonzaga Barry; “Leave after you something on which others may build.” It is our opportunity and responsibility, as it was for others who have gone before us, to transform our facilities in response to the changing needs of our young women.
