St Hilda's Anglican School for Girls has purchased a 7.4 hectare property in Pemberton for its new Yeagarup Campus.
Named after the Indigenous title for the local area, the campus is noted for its closeness to Gloucester National Park and the Bibbulman Track as well as forestland and farming properties.
The property was originally a cooking school with cabin-style accommodation, and features a water tank and commercial kitchen.
Renovations of the property are projected to be completed before 2021.
St Hilda's Anglican School principal Fiona Johnston said the campus would serve as a third home for the school, and that there are plans to hold wellness, co-curricular and outdoor education programs at the property.
“Owning our own rural property provides us with flexibility and provides our teaching staff with control over their programs and timings,” she said.
