The aim of the project was to build a purpose designed seniors study centre for year 11 and 12. 2015 would be the first year the school would have a year 11, and 2016 a year 12.
Expansion of the school provides additional educational facilities for the area. i.e. the school can now be classified as one providing education from Kindergarten to HSC (year 12) for those within the community.

This provides security for parents of the community knowing that their children have the benefit of belonging to one school and one campus for all of the their secondary education, giving children the opportunity to grow friendships and for their parents to grow friendships with other parents.
