The Senior Years Hub is the exciting and specially-designed addition on campus for St Augustine’s
With modern facilities seen on tertiary campuses, the Senior Years Hub provides
an open and flexible learning environment, where Year 10-12 students are supported to plan their
Modern pedagogies have created a shift in education and the way curriculum is delivered. Now more
than ever, there is a need to provide more accessible, collaborative and visible learning to engage all
students. This is delivered with the New Senior Years Hub, which includes: seminar rooms, meeting
rooms, an auditorium, and recharge zone with a kitchen and deck over-looking campus.
Members of the St Augustine’s College community were invited to share their ideas and opinions on
this new facility prior to construction, by participating in workshops run by a Brisbane consulting
agency. This feedback was used by architects who also integrated the College’s Augustinian values
in the design. The seminar rooms - Ostier one and two - were named so after the town in Rome
where St Augustine had a spiritual religious experience he described as a mystical touch from God.
Occurring around the time when he was baptised, he then returned to North Africa where he would
set up his community, become a priest and bishop.
With students also learning holistically in this facility, it was important to have this Catholic
connection in the Senior Years Hub. During the building orientation, Year 12 students also celebrated
with a ‘100 days until graduation’ cake which is tradition at the College.
St Augustine’s College is looking forward to hosting many events in this facility including a Festival of
Learning event in October that will be open to the public. Look out for more details soon so you can
experience the Senior Years Hub for yourself.
