16. Yhuuramulum

Yhuuramulum, on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin was officially opened on Tuesday, 29 May 2018. The name means 'to dream’ and is taken from the Ngunnawal language. It was selected through a community-wide naming competition, won by Year 7 student Charlotte Young. Charlotte’s entry reflected thoughtfully on the history of the local indigenous people, as well capturing the essence of the school’s motto ‘To the young anything is possible’.

The two-storey building was designed to take advantage of the amazing location and vista of Yarralumla Bay, with the upper floor offering multiple configuration options – suitable for entire year levels right down to small collaborative groups.

Yhuuramulum is utilised on an almost-daily basis to deliver the curriculum, with students having access to both the upper floor multi-purpose spaces and the ground floor STEM workshop and rowing facilities.

The wider school community also enjoys access to Yhuuramulum through attendance at concerts, exhibitions, P&F Association events, book launches and information sessions.
