ouch, sorry to hear that. i have seen that many times. and the easiest thing to do is yes install long block. but there are more choices to take, here is my thought. OK so they say number one is in the oil pan ? so they removed the oil pan ? OK well then how do the cylinder walls look ? um OK are the scratched ? scored or is the a huge gouge on the cylinder wall ? OK if the wall is OK then the piston took the hit ? they need to do their job not just shot gun it. have they took a borescope in through the spark plug hole ? to look for damage ? if the piston and rod are damaged and nothing else then replace the piston and rod. they are trying to get ya for parts. careful here cause they may get mad and jack the labor. stay calm and get several bids for the job. us techs are starving right now as well as the small shop owner. use this and take a loss for diag at the current place if ya have to. you would prolly save money at a machine shop type of auto repair who does machine work in house. good luck

The water pump is on the passenger side of the engine below the tensioner. Also look for coolant leaks from the head gasket.

Not familiar enough with Holden to say, but according to Wiki, it is an Australian version of a GM, German Opel.
Here is what the waterpump looks like:

I would suspect the thermostat has stuck closed. Drain the system, heater on hot, flush the system, replace the thermostat, pour in pure water and see if that cures the problem. If it does then drain the system again and pour in a 50/50 mx of antifreeze and distilled water. You also need to make sure the cooling fan is working and the water pump is circulating coolant in the system.
