This masterplan will give The Friends’ School a framework for new and improved facilities that reflect the school’s ethos and education philosophies.
The Friends’ School is a co-educational Quaker school with 1300 students in North Hobart. The masterplan will identify possible sites for new buildings and green spaces, and examine how to enhance connections between the two campuses, update classrooms and specialist facilities, provide more flexible learning and social spaces, and better manage traffic and parking.
Guiding the masterplan is the desire to develop facilities that benefit the whole Friends’ community without undermining the school’s distinctive feel. Ensuring Quaker values such as simplicity, community and environmental stewardship are reflected in the design is also at the heart of the project.
