Students in Preston will soon have the first-rate classrooms and facilities with the $15.6 million Preston High School replacing the former Preston Girls’ Secondary College on Cooma Street.
The former school’s central heritage building will be converted into state-of-the-art classrooms and a STEM centre. The redevelopment also involves relocating the canteen and administration facilities, demolishing non-heritage buildings and landscaping outdoor areas.
The new school was designed by Baldasso Cortese, and will be built by CA Property Group. It will open for its first cohort of Year 7 students from the start of next year.
