The school opened the 260 seat centre last Thursday, after 10 years of planning and development.
“It’s probably taken a decade to get from day one to here,” Principal Mark Jessup said.
“The development of the building has taken the last four years, and the building process started about 18 months ago, and we now have a wonderful community resource.”
The new theatre, which replaces the school’s previous centre, Brady Hall, will give the school’s already strong performing arts students a boost, Mr Jessup said. “Our students, who are very talented in the performing arts, have a wonderful facility in which they can sing, dance and act.”
“We’ve always had a focus on performing arts, it’s always been a strength of the school and it will move from strength to strength now that we have a world-class facility for students to demonstrate their talents.”
Mr Jessup said the new Performing Arts Centre would be available for community use.
