2019-2025 Inspiring young women to succeed in an evolving world.

This Master Plan provides a long-ranging vision for developing our physical campus to support the school’s mission to nurture and challenge our students within a dynamic and holistic learning environment.

Developed in consultation with the school community, design, heritage and education experts, this Master Plan aligns the School’s physical development with its strategic objectives to ensure All Hallows’ School continues to provide a contemporary education that excites and engages our students, while promoting their academic and emotional wellbeing.

The Master Plan renews All Hallows’ School’s proud tradition of inspiring and empowering young women to succeed in a rapidly evolving world.

The Potter Building

All Hallows' partnered with the creative innovators at Fulton Trotter Architects to deliver a total re-design and re-purposing of one of our key campus buildings.

The reimagined Potter Building was opened in 2022 and has become an inspiring learning hub located in the heart of our school.

The new facility houses a range of related functions including:

  • A library with additional space
  • An integration of Blue Chip student IT support services
  • An enlarged senior study centre and maker spaces for senior and middle school
  • Sport Department staff offices with access through to the gym
  • Two Head of House offices
  • The Career Counselling office
  • Staff areas with a variety of teaching and collaboration spaces

With eco-friendly design elements, sympathetic to our beautiful heritage environment, the transformation has made the most of stunning views, natural light, timber and greenery, creating a vibrant learning hub, where staff and students alike share a journey of growth and discovery.

The existing four floors have been extended laterally, with internal stairwells for connectivity. Two external stairwells are a striking focal point of the building while the addition of a fifth floor has created much-needed space with a stunning rooftop function room and terrace to house special events and celebrations.

McAuley Hall

McAuley Hall was opened in 1958 and originally was a training college for the Sisters of Mercy. The top two floors were bedrooms and level 1 and 2 were teaching spaces. Since 2006 when primary years were reintroduced to the school, the building has accommodated Years 5-7 and their associated library. With the change of Year 7 to high school, the building now accommodates only Years 5 and 6 with the library amalgamated with the new Potter Library which opened in 2022.

In 2023, McAuley Hall was refurbished to continue to meet the needs of Years 5 and 6.

The McAuley Hall renovation included:

  • 12 general learning areas designed to support pedagogy with new furniture throughout
  • Multiple student/class breakout areas
  • Learning support meeting areas
  • Instrument and other storage spaces, changeroom, and bathroom facilities
  • Office space for Head of Years 5 & 6
  • Meeting room
  • Staff room for 10-13 staff with kitchenette, dining area, and hot desks for support staff

St Gertrude's

Plans are also progressing to upgrade St Gertrude's for our Years 5 & 6 students. Current plans include seating nodes with shade trees, a combined fort and tunnel, and custom rope play.

Student Wellbeing Centre 

The new Student Wellbeing Centre will bring members of the AHS Student Care team closer together to continue to provide holistic care for all students. The Centre will continue to enhance the wellbeing of our students by focusing on their physical, mental and emotional needs. 

The Centre will include: 
• A Health Centre with space for two nurses, a treatment room, an isolation room, an accessible toilet, a waiting area and a waiting-to-go-home area
• Counsellors’ offices and meeting rooms 
• Head of House offices, meeting rooms, tea station and a small waiting area
