Thornhill PS Achieves Passivhaus Certification

July 14, 2022


We are very pleased to announce our Thornhill Primary School building has been certified to the Passivhaus Classic building standard by the Passive House Institute in Germany!

Congratulations to the whole team on this great achievement, making the school one of only a handful of buildings to achieve this standard.

With excellent thermal comfort, energy efficiency and air quality, Thornhill promises to be an ideal learning environment.

Thornhill Primary expanded from a 1-form entry school to a 3-form entry school with a new building designed to the Passivhaus Standard and refurbishment / remodelling works to the existing building to enable both new and old to be holistically brought together.
