With site tours led by Jason Tulich, Project Manager, Gary Stein, Senior Site Manager, and Brad Crosier, Foreman, guests were shown around the impressive development. Weaving through multiple new learning spaces and formal function rooms on the upper level, the impressive Baronial design detailing could be referenced across the site. Attendees also had the opportunity to hear from Ben Folkard, General Manager – Refurbishment & Live Environments, on the unique and rewarding challenges arising from the 19th Century Scots Baronial style. With architectural authenticity carried through the stonework, masonry techniques, and use of materials such as slate, bronze, iron and lead, the learning centre’s design will complement the school’s existing suite of buildings.
A High Tea tasting experience of modern Koori fusion was led by inspirational Indigenous chef, Jo-Ann Lee. Jo-Anne presented her signature mix of contemporary tastes with bush-tucker ingredients, a flavour-filled journey with every cup, sharing her Aboriginal culture and heritage with all. The Taylor team were treated to wattle seed scones with native quandong jam, to lemon myrtle cupcakes, raw vegan gourmet fudge wheels and more!
Thanks to all involved in bringing this event to life. As we to return to the connection/positivity of face-to-face events, we look forward to hosting regular TWIC events in the future.
