Roncalli and Sacred Heart Parish
Covered Sports Area and Pavilion

Students are at the forefront of this project which has seen the coalition between two prominent Timaru entities. By working together, they have been able to create an impressive outcome for the community and students for years to come.

The new joint project is shared between Roncalli College and Sacred Heart Parish with a footprint covering a total of 648m² plus a 1300m² covered court area. The Roncalli College pavilion consists of changing rooms, showers and meeting spaces and covers 284m². Sacred Heart Parish has an area of 364m² which is made up of a formal entrance facing towards Craigie Avenue with meeting hall, meeting room and commercial kitchen.

The 1300m² roof area covers an all-weather sports ground suitable for hockey, netball and basketball. With a growing roll, Roncalli needed to create extra utility spaces, an area where students could still enjoy sports regardless of the weather while also providing a multipurpose turf to develop their hockey teams.

Sacred Heart was also in need of extra space so it was agreed to work together on a joint project. An excellent example of great collaborative governance resulting in benefits for the school, parish and the wider community.
