Catholic Leadership Centre / Woods Bagot

The Archdiocese of Melbourne and the Catholic Education Office had a vision to adaptively re-use the historic St John’s Evangelist School site in East Melbourne to become a Professional Learning Centre for Teachers and Principals within the Catholic Education system. With design by Woods Bagot, the Catholic Leadership Centre features a series of flexible meeting and learning spaces housed within new and existing buildings. Three existing buildings on the site are now part of the centre. The heritage Celtic Hall, the original former St John’s Church and the St John’s school building, were refurbished and converted into new meeting and learning spaces. The local St John’s Parish Church is utilised by the centre from time to time — via ArchDaily
