All Hallows' School, QLD
New build or refurbishment: Refurbishment
Architect: Fulton Trotter Architects
Project completed: 01/05/2014
All Hallows' School is an all-girls school founded in the Sisters of Mercy tradition for students from grades 5 to 12. The school was established 155 years ago and is the oldest surviving secondary school in Queensland. Their educational vision is for the pursuit of excellence, justice for all, and the service of others. The school is located in central Brisbane, and acknowledges and respects the diverse backgrounds of the members of the school community. All Hallows' strives to respect their rich history and also be future focused and innovative in how they deliver their curriculum.
Libraries have evolved from information spaces to social spaces. The Potter Library was designed to embrace this. It provides learning spaces for class groups that deliberately feel very different to a standard classroom. The library also offers social gathering areas for members of the school community. Students meet before and after school and during break times to study, relax and socialise with their friends. Movie nights are held for House groups, and parents groups and co-curricular groups use the spaces for meetings. The library has extended hours to accomodate this, being open from 7.30am to 5.00pm and the Senior Study Centre from 6am to 8pm.
