Junior Area Renovation

By NEWS

The School Advisory Council has been busy preparing the plans for our new extension of the Year One Classrooms as well as the new outdoor learning areas for the Pre-Primary and Kindergarten. As a Council we have worked on the plans for the past two years and we have now commenced the build. Demolition began on Tuesday 28th September, this is a very exciting time for our school.

To make this all possible you may have noticed that Year 1A moved into the library and will remain there until the end of the year. Year 1B have also moved into the Helping Hands classroom, they will stay in this room until the end of the year. Helping Hands will begin running from the Kindy A classroom from the beginning of next Term which is Tuesday 12th October. At the beginning of 2022 Helping Hands will return to their previous room.

We envisage that the build will be completed by February ready for the start of the new year. We thank the staff for the amazing way they have effortlessly moved rooms and the way they have helped our students transition so smoothly.
