Our aspirational outlook extends beyond a programme of education to the very facilities in which it takes place. Our Anglican heritage teaches us that when one door closes we find another to open. The seismic events of 2011 have resulted in the opportunity to purpose-build several new state of the art facilities. With some completed and others in development, we are focused on building a strong future.
Feelings of excitement met mixed emotion recently, when the portacom which housed teachers and students after the seismic events of 11 September was removed. The portacom replaced the Boys' School which was completely destroyed in the earthquake along with the Junior School.
The Warren and Mahoney designed new building will consist of 8 classrooms and reflects both our sense of tradition and eye on the future. The building boasts ancillary spaces and offices spread across two storeys. The classrooms are all separate rooms, however, we have designed the spaces so that teachers and students have options to work outside the four walls of their room should this better enhance the learning being undertaken.
It is wonderful to have reached this point and we wish to thank and recognise all current and past Board members and staff involved in getting this across the line. This is exciting news and a great moment in time for our wonderful school. The classroom block will be completed by 2022.
