The New Performing Arts Centre at Hamilton Secondary College includes a full dome planetarium along with a 150 seat auditorium, general learning areas and rehearsal rooms, and canteen.

A new plaza space provides a link to other school buildings and offers outdoor learning and socialisation opportunities amongst a beautiful green landscape.

The Performing Arts Centre’s sculptural aesthetic makes it an exciting addition amongst the traditional educational buildings, while providing a visual marker from Marion Road. The planetarium represents the importance of space research and the government’s commitment to developing expertise in South Australia and is a valuable addition to the schools existing Space Program, which is open to students across the state.

The auditorium provides high quality theatre facilities allowing the school to present professional performances. The quality of the build itself is equal to the unique nature of the facility, and the College is delighted with the end result.
