Special Projects

Ross Park facilities are looking marvellous after major renovations and new buildings in recent years.

Ross Park was allocated $6 million by the NT Government to upgrade school facilities. In addition, the Australian Government provided $2 million as a BER grant. 

Stage 1 was completed in 2008, with a major facelift to the assembly area and a new quadrangle. 

Stage 2 was completed in July 2009 with 6 new junior classrooms and a General Purpose Room and they look fabulous! 

Stage 3 rebuilt remaining classrooms using BER funding. In addition, we have a new block of toilets, a completely renovated staffroom, upgraded air conditioning and a big shed that houses our school bus safely! It is a vast improvement on our 1961 facilities.

Stage 4, with two additional classrooms, a specialty Music Room, new paths, an innovative bike shed and a facelift for the Administration building, was completed  in May 2012. 

The Melody Fence was an added bonus thanks to Arts NT and local artists. Play your way into and out of school!
