Ongoing Building Works

With the scaffolding now surrounding our school, it is clear at first glance that we are undergoing extensive maintenance work to our beautiful, old building. Now that the dining block is complete, Robertson's construction workers have started external and internal repairs with a focus on the east side of the Junior School building, to begin with.  Our Junior Leadership Team and wider school have, of course, been taking the opportunity to find out all about the construction business, along the way!


Our Year 3 classrooms have now moved into the new dining block and you can find the Main Office by going down the steps at the bottom of the school yard and following the arrows to the dining block main entrance. Our office staff will be there to greet you - just press the silver button on the intercom to say hello.
