Primary and high school students at Warnervale’s Lakes Anglican Grammar School will now enjoy integrated learning in the areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) through inquiry based learning experiences this year.
The school’s purpose-built facilities are state-of-the-art and will provide both Junior and Senior School students with access to cutting edge technologies such as robotics, coding and 3D printing.
“The development of STEM education as part of our overall offering will allow students to engage with the contemporary world and further develop their 21st century learning capacities such as critical thinking, creativity and problem solving, which are enormously important values for our future workforce” said Principal, Michael Hannah.
“Students will have access to learning experiences that simply cannot be achieved in a normal classroom setting,” he added.
The school’s new STEM buildings have been 12 months in the making and at a cost of just over $4m, is a substantial investment into the school.
The buildings will be officially opened by the Bishop of Newcastle, the Right Reverend Dr Peter Stuart, and, Bishop Charlie Murry, the Assistant Bishop of Newcastle and School Council Chair, on March 11.
The recent building developments also include a new, well-equipped Design and Technology workshop, and a dedicated Drama Studio, complete with stage lighting, curtains and rehearsal mirrors.
