Annexe buildings are shifting

9/11/2018
As most people would be aware, we proudly run an Agricultural program in all year levels here at Isis District SHS. To do this, we currently operate two ag areas, a small area here on the main campus of the school for crops, chickens and aquaponics and a second area surrounding the Annexe buildings including a green house, orchard and animal enclosure. Whilst this arrangement has served us well, it has always been a preferred option to establish a single, combined area for our agricultural program. With this in mind, Chris Gill (Principal) has been able to negotiate with the Department of Education a solution to this and we have been working to have this turn into reality by relocating the existing Annexe (old primary school) buildings to the main campus. They will be situated on the current main campus ag plot whilst the land area at the annexe will be converted to our single area Ag plot.
 
 
We are very excited by this prospect which is scheduled to occur over the coming months as it marks the largest infrastructure investment in the school for quite some time. It will mean that all other classes will be held on the main campus from 2019 and Ag classes will have the ability to utilise a fully dedicated space on the Annexe grounds from 2019. By establishing the new precinct on the main campus it will decrease the ‘travel time’ to/from classes and avoid the exposure to the elements currently incurred eg walking to and from on the really hot days of summer or in rainy weather. Incorporated within the project is the construction of another under-covered area and a tiered seating amphitheatre suitable for a cohort parade. 
 


 
 
To enable preparation for the shifting of these buildings, the Annexe campus will be closed to students from 20 November 2018.
 
A community information session will be held on Tuesday 27th November at 6pm prior to the P&C meeting in the office conference room. At this meeting, we will display the plans for the relocation of the buildings and possible timelines for the moving of the buildings to any interested parties.
