The Evelyn Scott School is a state-of-the-art education facility located in Denman, Prospect, designed to cater for 1,288 students from preschool to year 10.

The project involved the construction of eight individual buildings, four carparks, a sporting oval suitable for soccer, rugby league and rugby union, two cricket nets and two outdoor basketball/netball courts. The general-purpose double gymnasium is suitable for roller derby training and competitions and includes two full sized courts with line markings for basketball, futsal, netball and volleyball.

The rich Aboriginal culture and history played an integral part in the learning experience with nature play, yarning circles and digging pits featured in the outdoor areas.

The Joss Construction team showed exceptional commitment to sustainability by diverting 98.53% of waste from going to landfill.
