Project Description

Highfields Preparatory & Kindergarten School is an independent private co-educational school located in Lindfield. The school takes students from Kindergarten to Yr 2 and provides an excellent facility and student-to-teacher ratio.

The project was a new 3 level building housing a library, storytime room and computer room on the lower ground floor, a hall and kitchen to the ground floor and music room facilities to level 1. The key features of the building include the detailed architecture of the lower floor library area, the colourful external façade and the rippletone ceiling installed in the hall area.

The major challenge of the project was working within the small, constrained site. The other major challenge was working in with the remainder of the school which was still operating and ensuring safety was at a high level to avoid any risk to the children attending the school.

The building encompassed detailed joinery and numerous finishes throughout, with the School P&C contributing to the final look of the facility. The new facility has provided the school with a modern, comfortable space in which to expand the services offered by the school.
