12. Jubilee Sports Centre
Built to mark the 60th Anniversary of the School, the Jubilee Sports Centre was opened on 11 September 1987 after years of fundraising by the school community, Gabriel Foundation and the School Board.
The building, one of the first school sports centres in Australia, was a much needed upgrade from the original gymnasium where some enthusiastic girls on the trampoline would hit their heads on the ceiling!

Today students enjoy a full-sized gym with various court markings for basketball, netball, badminton and volleyball. The complex contains a fitness room, fully equipped change-rooms, a classroom and ample equipment storage. Photographs of past and current students who have represented Australia in their chosen sport are on display creating our very own sporting hall of fame. Adjacent to the centre are full sized outdoor basketball, netball and tennis courts.
Almost ten years after the official opening of the gym, its completion was finally realised with the opening of Swimming Centre which is located underneath the Jubilee Sports Centre. The days of girls piling into the School’s mini vans to swim at public pools became a distant memory - we finally had not one, but two pools of our own.
Just a few months after the pool was opened, the builders of the Swimming Centre, Integrated Construction, were recognised by the Master Builders’ Association for their achievement in ‘Extensions, Refurbishments or Alterations – Technical Difficulty or Innovation’.
