The GCC has been advised by the ACT Education Directorate that eight (8) demountable classrooms will be installed at Gungahlin College in August 2023. The Directorate writes:

The Education Directorate is continuing to closely monitor enrolments at Gungahlin College and taking steps to ensure we have adequate space for learning across the school.

In addition to a range of improvements put in place over the past few months, plus planned improvements to the playing fields, Gungahlin College will soon be receiving additional science and mathematics learning spaces as well as eight additional transportable classrooms.

Delivering eight additional classrooms

Planning is underway to install four relocatable learning units (RLUs) this term, providing eight additional teaching and learning spaces for the school. Enrolments are projected to grow moderately in 2024 and 2025. If these enrolment projections are realised, students will be able to be accommodated within the increased capacity of the school.

The RLUs will be installed in the area currently occupied by the College tennis courts.

While this does cause some inconvenience for community, we are pleased to note the ACT Government is delivering a new 10-courts tennis facility in Amaroo to open in 2024, in partnership with Tennis Australia and Tennis ACT.

When the RLUs are removed, the tennis courts will be reinstated for community use.

Work to deliver and install the additional classrooms at Gungahlin College is expected to commence during August.
