As part of Aspect’s three-year strategic plan to invest in our physical infrastructure, Aspect is committing approximately $20 million to significantly refurbish several Aspect schools, to further develop best practice, autism-friendly spaces for our students.
This includes repositioning a number of key schools to ensure they offer high quality, safe and innovative education facilities that have flexibility to adapt as technology and learning model changes. This also includes incorporating common and recognisable themes across the schools, including internal areas and classroom furniture, external landscaping and playgrounds, and signage.
Furthermore, the refurbishments will allow for expansion in some of the schools where there is a waitlist and immediate need for Aspect's education services. Current estimates indicate the expansions will cater for an additional 50 students in total, whilst maintaining the specialised, individual teaching, and student-teacher ratios.
