Aim High Building Fund
Building Learning Places
Specialist buildings, classrooms, and other learning spaces are required if Balwyn
High School is to continue to provide personalised learning and growth opportunities
to all young people. Whatever your child’s passions, special talents and abilities,
whether they are in Sport, Music, Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Information Technology,
Media, Science or Humanities, the right facilities are essential.
The School Council, in partnership with all members of the school community, is
committed to the future development of the school. In a rapidly changing world we
cannot afford to be complacent. There are many challenges to be faced if we are
to remain one of Victoria’s leading schools.
As a public school, the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development
provides the basic infrastructure. The Aim High Building Fund was born out of the
belief that the basic infrastructure could be significantly enhanced through a strong
partnership that adds value to building projects funded by Department of Education
and also to those funded solely by the school.
The Architectural Master Plan - Our Priorities
Balwyn High School’s Architectural Master Plan has earmarked the following priority
- a new art complex incorporating visual communication and design studios, photographic
labs, and multimedia, ceramics and studio arts spaces
- a new technology complex where students will explore electronics, robotics, and
computer-aided design and manufacture, systems and materials technology
- replacement of the 1950s general-purpose classrooms and toilets, and provision of
appropriate staffrooms for teaching and support staff
In the next ten years, with parent, alumni and community support, we can also deliver
the following projects:
- an all-weather playing surface, upgrading of the oval, relocation of the cricket
nets, development of new tennis courts and a long jump pit
- an extension of the weights training room in the Sports Centre
- an environmental centre for the study of sustainability
