Read all about it: Blackfriars launches 2024 Annual Appeal

Blackfriars is starting a new chapter of building works.

Later this year, work will start on Stage 2 of the redevelopment of the Hallinan Library.

Over the past six months, the northern side of the library has been transformed to include a new Wellbeing Centre and Primary Library – each with their own private gardens – and an expanded IT hub.

Now, attention turns to the remainder of the library complex, with plans to create a modern, high-tech environment that will take our students’ learning to the next level.

“We’re so proud of what we have already been able to achieve with Stage 1 of the library redevelopment,” Principal David Ruggiero said.

“We look forward to transforming the remaining library space to create a 21st-century learning environment that will take us well into the future.”

Plans for the Stage 2 development include formal study areas, a dedicated training space and upgraded offices for Learning Innovation and Digital Technology.

Books, of course, will remain at the heart of the library, with new shelves set to provide better access to our extensive collection and new furniture to help create a mix of formal and informal spaces for learning and relaxation.

“The full redevelopment of the Hallinan Library will benefit Blackfriars students for years to come,” Mr Ruggiero said.

“We are pleased to be able to continue to provide modern, innovative, relevant and inviting spaces for our students.”

In the spirit of the Dominican pillar of Community, we invite you to make a contribution to our 2024 Annual Appeal, directly supporting the Stage 2 redevelopment of the Hallinan Library.

What is the Annual Appeal?

Blackfriars is committed to providing students with opportunities to grow and develop the skills necessary for their future. However, the reality is that schools such as Blackfriars cannot grow and thrive on fees alone.

That is why donations from our community are so important.

The Blackfriars Annual Appeal is one of the most important ways in which our school is able to raise funds for advancement projects.

Each year, Blackfriars reaches out to its community to support a specific project via the Annual Appeal.

Every gift, large or small, makes a difference.

Credit card donations can be made at any time using our secure online portal at Alternatively, you can telephone the Blackfriars Development Office during business hours on (08) 8169 3966 to discuss other options.

Gifts to the 2024 Annual Appeal are made through the Blackfriars Building Fund and are tax deductible.
