A high-performance training centre is being developed for Mulwaree High School students.
A spokesperson from the school said the idea came during the most recent COVID lockdown.
"While our students were learning from home, the PDHPE faculty were brainstorming ways to improve the learning facilities at the school and resources to benefit student learning," the spokesperson said.
"It was identified that the existing school gym could be improved, thus, providing enhanced opportunities for students to develop their knowledge and skills.
"As a result, several of the PDHPE staff collaborated to put together a proposal for funding, which was then kindly supported by the Veolia Mulwaree Trust (VMT)."
The VMT funded Mulwaree High School with $14,220 to build the facility which will provide students and staff with access to a state-of-the-art training facility, resourced with industry standard fitness equipment.
"It will enable the PDHPE faculty to enhance the practical learning activities on offer for students that complement the theoretical concepts studied," the spokesperson said.
"Students enrolled in extra-curricular programs like the Mulwaree Sporting Academy will also utilise this facility.
"It will enable access to enhanced opportunities in strength and conditioning training, which in turn will enable them to improve themselves as athletes."
The project is expected to be completed in time for the start of the 2022 school year.
"The removal of the previous internal structures including the walls, flooring and equipment was recently completed and the construction of the internal fit out is now underway.
"The fitness equipment has been ordered and is set for delivery in late January."
Mulwaree High School was one of 66 local community groups and organisations to receive funding.
