Weledeh Elementary and St. Patrick`s High School are two facilities combined with a double gymnasium and circulation spine. St. Pat`s is built around a large exposed rock promontory with classroom wings designed as pavilions that extend from the large central area. The central rock area functions both as a work area, hang out space and public presentation and stage area. Musical performances, theatre as well as community gatherings frequently take place here both during and after school hours.
