Aside from the all-weather sporting functionality, the Cabra Dominican College gym greatly expands the school’s ability to host events for up to 1500 people. In-house lighting, sound and visual projection needs have all been carefully planned, catering for music, theatre and school assembly requirements. A double court gym replaces the existing single court, now flanked with ample spectator space for sports.
The building captures the opportunity for a formal entry on the southern boundary; its form a nod to the award-winning Therese Sweeney Music Centre. Aside from general learning areas, the gym includes change facilities, dedicated areas for teacher preparation and space for an EFM Health Club on site. A highly visible foyer offers further allocation for spectators and breakout capacity during formal classes and events.
