Let's build it together - Opening 2021

The Beyond Science Centre

The Beyond Science Centre, opening early 2021, is the first building in a three stage Master Plan. It will create a hub of ingenuity, optimising the relationship between science, mathematics, technology and design to enrich learning opportunities.

We are seeking to partner with our community to raise $2 million in philanthropic support. Whilst this is a large target, we have already hit $1.7 million in pledges and donations. Reaching our target will allow us to move on to other projects in our Master Plan sooner.

Just as generations before have contributed to Capital projects for the future of the School, we hope you too can be part of the future of Fintona.

Well known architect and past parent Corbett Lyon knows first-hand the importance of the design, innovation and practicality of a new building.

The team at Lyons has been working closely with project stakeholders and members of the wider Fintona community to create a building that is iconic and fit for purpose; one which embraces our history, culture and physical environment.

Fintona’s built fabric has changed throughout its history. From its first home in Mayston Street Camberwell, to Burke Road, and finally to Balwyn, principals have worked to ensure that the students’ needs have been met through the provision of appropriate buildings and spaces. The Beyond Science Centre will be a modern building providing a bookend to the Margaret Ross Centre. Construction of the new building will be offset by landscaping which will ultimately provide additional garden space.

There are a number of ways in which our generous Donors will be acknowledged

Donor Wall inside the Centre for donations over $1,000
Major Donor Board for donations over $10,000.
Room Naming Rights for donations over $25,000.

Pledges can be made in one lump sum or over three years. Donor names will be acknowledged, not the amount donated. You can remain anonymous if you wish.
