School Life - Space to grow

Cobram Anglican Grammar School is excited to announce the recent acquisition of a four hectare parcel of land abutting its eastern boundary, and doubling the school’s existing footprint. It is expected that the land, approximately 10 acres, will be used for the future expansion of the Middle and Senior School facilities along with passive and active recreational areas for all students - providing AFL, soccer, cricket, netball/basketball and general outdoor facilities.

‘A bird’s eye view’. Pictured, the existing footprint of Cobram AGS - and the additional land to the east.

Principal, Mr Steve Gale, is delighted with the purchase. ‘The recent enrolment growth surge since 2016 has dictated that we plan for a future with a much larger student population than was ever expected’. ‘The land acquisition secures our ability to provide outstanding facilities for the predicted significant increase in student numbers into the future’, he said.

School Council chair, Mr Trevor Noonan, was also extremely pleased. ‘The school has grown steadily since its inception in 2000’, he said. ‘Based on recent enrolments, and future projections, School Council became aware that we were at risk of becoming ‘land locked’, he said. ‘This acquisition will give us the opportunity to develop first class amenities for all students who attend Cobram Anglican Grammar School, well into the future’.
