About Bede Polding College
Bede Polding College opened
its gates in 1986 to a partially completed building at Rifle Range Road with
only 110 pupils and 8 staff members which has now grown to over 1,200 students
and 100 staff members. The college is still the only Catholic college in the
Hawkesbury and services an area stretching from Lithgow to Marsden Park and
Penrith to Gosford. It completed various building stages which generated more
facilities and opportunities for the growing staff and students that were to
attend the college.
The facilities that are offered include fully equipped industrial kitchens, wood and metal workshops, music recording and instrumental equipment, design and technology, agriculture, and greenspaces. It is important that the school can offer its students with the greatest opportunities possible in the safest manner. The layout of the school allows for multiple areas to enjoy recreationally and to rejuvenate during breaks of their working day. Aesthetically pleasing and comfortable outdoor furniture pieces are extremely important to the design of their outdoor areas and satisfaction of the students that occupy them.
What the client said
The principal has a vision to
improve the school facilities to a premium standard. The zone has a distinctive
religious garden feature donated by an ex-student and needed some suitable
free-standing seat & table settings that could be moved off the grass for
mowing and with the flexibility to move them according to the 4 seasons to
catch the sun (or shade). The Wood Grain powder coat finish on the Madrid
settings is exactly what was required to save hours of their labour every year
compared to old, high-maintenance timber slat furniture they got previously.
Astra Street Furniture were
exceptionally helpful in providing slat samples to choose from and approve for
ordering the right product for the application. When the seats arrived, the
students were looking for a practical project so we got them to bolt them
together. Great timing!
We are indeed happy with our latest purchase.
