Announcement: New Undercover Area

On behalf of the Bold Park Community School Advisory Council (Inc) and the Staff of Bold Park Community School I am pleased to announce that the school will be investing in the first phase of an on-site development to refurbish the area currently occupied by the Basketball Court.

The project provides the school with an opportunity to move the proposed facilities through the first of two potential stages of development.

Phase One (“The Undercover Area”): In Phase One we will install a cover for the basketball/tennis area which will become a covered sport / play and meeting area. In this initial phase the foundations will also be replaced to include electrics and infrastructure to prepare for a possible phase two. The footprint will allow for approximately 890m2.

Phase 1 – Undercover Area Artist’s Impression

In Phase Two the “Undercover Area” may (at a later date) be fully enclosed to include an open design concept facility which will double as both an Indoor Sporting Facility and Performing Arts Centre (complete with stage, change rooms, backstage areas, green room and potential for music rooms, kitchenette, etc.).  In this model, the space would also be able to be ‘opened up’ to the outdoors through giant sliding doors for events / celebrations and a possible mezzanine floor.

Although this project has been in planning and discussion since 2016, we are announcing today as we have now formally received the necessary development approvals from the Town of Cambridge and the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC).

In the immediate term, we are securing final structural drawings, obtaining a building permit and getting quotes to commence the building of the structure. A rough drawing of the structure has been included for your perusal. We will keep you posted on potential timelines for construction as the project proceeds.

I would like to acknowledge the work of your Board, Lei Baker, Peter Lippman and our Team Leaders in bringing their hearts and minds to this project. I would also like to particularly acknowledge our Business Manager, Sue Wyatt who has overseen the application processes and managed most aspects of the process AND our good friend Mark Baker who has once again been both an amazing and talented architect but also ‘guided our hand’ through these initial processes.

We are excited by the opportunities this development will allow for our learning community and thank you for your support and encouragement.

Kind regards

Paul Whitehead
