Located in the Goulburn-North Eastern region of Victoria, the Waaia-Yalka South Primary School is a small regional co-ed primary school. The project involved the master planning and adaptive redesign of existing infrastructure that was aging and no longer fit for purpose. As part of the redevelopment, Grayspace Architects developed a masterplan for the upgrade and modernising of the existing school infrastructure, that catered for future expansion and changing pedagogical needs.

The project involved new plumbing and irrigation works, new amenities additions, and new front and rear entrances. The project also included works to the building envelope to significantly reduce the operational energy of the facilities and remove all asbestos within the existing building, and the addition of new solar panels and inverter. The new building works have created a more sustainable, self-sufficient, and modern learning environment for the local prep to grade 6 students and staff.
