Building Works

Over the holidays the Grounds and Facilities staff have been working hard, not only for us in Boarding, but across the school on various projects.  While we still have a few things that are going to happen in the next few months we are very happy with the works that were completed in both the Year 7/8 House and Year 9 House.

The new entry and foyer in the Year 7/8 House has completely transformed the House and it is amazing the difference that this small addition has made.  The activity room now being joined is being utilised more and the foyer area is proving a popular space to gather.  The next part of the upgrade is to remove the remaining internal wall to completely open up the foyer space, install a kitchen into the old activity room and install bi fold doors that connect the outside patio area with the new kitchen.

The Year 9 House also received a few alterations with bigger projects yet to come.  To try and provide a space for our musically blessed boys we have created a series of practice rooms that can be used by the music department during school time and by boarding after hours.  The rooms have been soundproofed and are ready for use.  A new TV area has also been created upstairs and this is so that we can provide the boys with a couple of areas to relax in.

The Year 10 to 12 team have also been working hard to install whiteboards into all rooms.
