Take some time to bask in its glory.
The new building at Old Bar Public School is open for business, much to the delight of staff, students and parents.
A series of walking tours were recently held to give parents and community members a glimpse of the contemporary facility.
It's an exciting time for the school and Old Bar community, according to principal Deborah Scanes.
"We are thrilled to be moving students and teachers into the new, state-of-the-art learning spaces over the next few weeks," Mrs Scanes said.
"Since the initial planning for the building in 2017, there has been a lot of collaboration with various stakeholders to provide a facility that is both flexible and engaging.
"As the learning spaces and furnishings are very modern and quite different from the traditional classrooms we are used to, we have been putting a lot of effort into equipping our teaching and support staff with training in utilising student-centred spaces, flexible student seating arrangements and team teaching techniques."
The building caters for more than 240 students at a time and took less than one year to construct.
It was designed to take advantage of the sea breeze from Old Bar Beach.
This means the building will be cool in summer and warm in winter. While the building does have air conditioning, the school expects to use it only a handful of times throughout the year.
The wave pattern on the outside reflects the geographical location, with the colours inside the rooms inspired by local flora and fauna.
Classrooms are decked out with contemporary furniture and modern technology such as smart boards. Tables and chairs are flexible and height adjustable.
There are also several rooms designed for those in need of peace and quiet.
Unique and movable seats are on each floor, outside the learning spaces and near the elevator. New gardens and bubblers are on the ground floor next to the building.
Aboriginal artwork will soon be added to the entrances of each learning space.
The benefits of the building are well known among students.
"Because we are working with another class, we get to know more students and make more friends," Lucy Trotter said.
"I love it because everything is new and bright and we get to try new things.The chairs are all different and we get to choose the one that we like best," Madison Davies added.
Years three and four students will say goodbye to the demountables and be the first to call the new building home.
Just a few weeks out from graduation, year six students will also have classes there.
The demountables will soon be removed from the school, opening up ample room in the playground.
Community liaison officer Mhora Davies said the efforts of builder Lipman haven't gone unnoticed.
"Despite the adjustments that we needed to make in order to accommodate the building process, we have really appreciated the effort from the project team and builders to make it as smooth and safe as possible," Mrs Davies said.
"The site managers from Lipman - Joe, Dave and Luke were excellent.
"They communicated with us throughout the project, and made every effort to plan their operations around special events on our school calendar.
"They even attended some of our community events at school - we will miss having them around."
A official celebration of the facility will be held in early 2020. Community members will be invited to attend.
