The venue complex is air-conditioned and contains a large auditorium, a meeting and functions room, dressing rooms and foyer areas.

School performances are truly professional events thanks to our state of the art, multi-purpose venue. The Aurora Centre is where we come together for division assemblies, prize giving, and performances of all scales.
