Brazel Haley Maggs Architects were approached by Avondale Primary School to develop a masterplan for their existing school site. The brief was to cater for an increase in pupil numbers by approx. 50%, and meet guidelines as prescribed by the Department of Education.

The design comprises a central hard stand assembly area flanked by two building zones; one an administrative and pre-primary to year 2 teaching area, and the other a library & teaching spaces for years 3 to 6. Future expansion is facilitated through the design of modular, interconnected classrooms, each with access to natural light and passive ventilation. A large covered netball court provides an all-weather facility and doubles as spectator shelter for the oval to the north.
