Our new Assembly Hall (The Farrall Centre) is an environment that unites students under one roof, allowing them to continue to move forward with integrity, compassion and personal achievement. No price can be placed on this. For many years, The Friends’ School needed a vibrant meeting place where the Morris - Friends' Primary Years, the High School and Clemes students can gather together; a place that is a hub of cultural, spiritual, creative and academic celebration. We now have one.
Your gift, no matter how big or small, will make a difference towards enriching the educational offering of The Friends’ School. The Farrall Centre is an example of considered, sustainable design using low-maintenance, robust materials with reduced life-cycle costs, and the use of natural air flow and daylight results in efficient, low-impact heating and cooling.
The centre is two-tiered, with an inclusive, welcoming entrance that is accessed from both the ground and upper floors. The ground floor, with seating for 400 and a fully-equipped performance stage, can be transformed into an open space. The upper level, also offers seating for 400 and has various flexible uses, such as a function room.
The Building Program offers a tax deductible opportunity to contribute to the building of new facilities such as The Farrall Centre and improvements to our environmental camp, Far South at Dover.
