Our Building Fund

When term time is over – building begins

The St Andrew’s Cathedral School Foundation Building Fund provides an important source of funding for capital projects and continuously maintaining and improving school facilities.

In 2018 the main focus of our fundraising was Chapter House.  Having achieved a fundraising target beyond our expectations, Chapter House is set to be transformed into a 500 seat performance space that preserves the wonderful history and heritage of the building while making it a state of the art facility for students to learn and perform in.  Plans have now been approved by the Heritage Council and it is anticipated that building will commence in July 2019 with a 2020 completion date planned.

February 2019 saw the opening of the new Sports Centre on the ground floor of St Andrew’s House which includes a strength and conditioning facility, a large open space for indoor sport, exercise, sprint training as well as additional teaching spaces.

Work has also been completed in the BBC with new classrooms on the plaza level and renovations of level 4 as well as new junior school classrooms on level 6 of St Andrew’s House and the creation of  additional soundproof practice/tutorial rooms in our music centre on level 8 of SAH.

The need for fundraising continues and building fund donations go directly to support these projects.


Parents are asked to donate to the building fund when they pay their fees. A target of $175 per family per term has been set for 2019 ($235 for Year 12 with 3 terms). It is with these tax deductible donations that the school is able to continually update our facilities, ensuring our students have every opportunity to achieve their very best. Every donation, no matter what size, is deeply appreciated and helps implement the SACS master plan.

We are always working to reconceptualise and redesign the use of space at SACS, to create flexible, inspirational and sustainable areas, both inside and outside the classroom. Improvement to facilities are ongoing and take place each holiday period so students’ learning is impacted as little as possible.

Donations to our building fund can be made here.
