Episode 10: In this podcast, Principal Stuart Meade meets with Flinders Capital Works Manager, Rocco Perugini for an update on the Flinders Masterplan construction project.
Stuart and Rocco discuss the proposed date that students and staff will settle into the newly refurbished Year 7 Precinct in Term 3 and highlight some of the outstanding features of the new learning zones. Rocco also gives an update on the impressive new Years 5 and 6 Precinct taking shape in the Primary School as well as the Flinders Aquatic Centre refurbishment.
Rocco shares what he loves about Flinders, having been on the College staff team for the past 16 years, mainly as Property Services Manager. Rocco knows the campus inside and out, having been in charge of all manner of tasks – big and small – from overseeing major construction projects to being the lucky one with the master key to turn off faulty fire alarms blaring in the middle of the night!
