Building Project Update 12

 

13th February, 2015

 

During the vacation work continued on our new building and we are hoping to start occupying the building in June. We are already planning a big ‘library-moving’ day when you will all be invited to school. Seeing how the building is coming together to link the primary and secondary sections of the school is very exciting and I know will add to our sense of community.
