Building works have been steaming ahead at Rivercrest Christian College this year.

Two major projects have just been completed, with more to come in 2022.

Rivercrest Christian College welcomed their Year 2 students to their new, purpose-built building at the start of the year.

With the support of the state government, MP Jordan Crugnale officially ‘turned the soil’ on Friday 14 May for new building works. These new works are well on the way at Rivercrest Christian College’s Middle Years Campus, which will have a new Performing Arts building and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) building come into fruition. This ground-breaking project was made possible through the approval of a $5 million grant.

This construction builds upon the recent expansion of the Rivercrest Middle Years campus, which added four new classrooms and breakout spaces for its secondary students. This campus aims to serve Years 6–12 students by 2025. Recent works at Rivercrest include:

– New student play courts

– Upgraded entrances

– Additional car parking

“The new building and infrastructure works at both our CREST Colleges is testament to our ongoing commitment to provide excellence in learning and wellbeing within contemporary, engaging spaces; our students continue to be supported to flourish within the impressive surrounds of the 55 hectare CREST precinct,” said Ms Christine Lucas, Head of Colleges.

Rivercrest Christian College is part of the Crest Educational precinct which also consists of, Hillcrest Christian College, Ayr Hill Equestrian Centre, Crest Institute, and a 25 acre Environmental Reserve. Hillcrest Christian College also celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.
