    The middle school stage 1b project is being funded by a $1.6-million business loan from the Lutheran Laypersons League and $800,000 from the Federal Government.

    The middle school includes years seven and eight this year and will grow to years seven to nine next year.

    Horsham builders R A Plazzer Builders won the contract for the stage 1b project, designed by Brand Architects.

    Middle school head Jason Przibilla said concrete slabs had been poured for the classrooms, teachers’ area and the outdoor play area, which included two TigerTurf hard courts.

    On Monday, builders started work on steel frames for the new rooms.

    Mr Przibilla said the project was due to be finished by July, in time for term three.

    ‘‘We’re really looking forward to the buildings,’’ he said.

    ‘‘There are plenty of rooms including four extra general learning areas, along with open learning areas where we can have a chapel, meetings and assemblies.

    ‘‘We’ve also got a seminar room, storage and teachers’ office area. When that’s all finished we’ll be able to house all the students.’’

    The upgrade will allow the school to have specialised subject rooms for mathematics, English and humanities, along with multi-purpose rooms.

    Mr Przibilla said the specialised teaching areas would give staff the opportunity to tailor how they taught subjects.

    ‘‘We want to keep the traditional approach, but also make sure we’re allowing the capacity to be flexible.’’

    He said middle school students would also have a courtyard after the completion of building works.

    ‘‘There’ll be some outdoor landscaping and gardening, which will provide a place for students to sit, relax and talk,’’ he said.

    Mr Przibilla said students were excited by the prospect of moving into the rooms.

    ‘‘The new year sevens are adjusting to secondary school at the moment – they’re asking lots of questions and are keen to get into the new building.’’
