It’s bare walls and boxes in our Prep classroom as we head towards the end of term—but for a very exciting reason: we’re renovating!
Over the school holidays the builders will be moving in as we renovate our Prep space to give us more classroom space, more room for extra children, and more room to play outside too.
Short term pain for long term gain!
As anyone who’s renovated knows, these projects never quite fit into the timeframe you’d like them to. We would have loved to have the whole renovation completed over the two week holiday break, but that’s unrealistic even for the fastest building team! A quality reno takes time, so our Prep are relocating during Term 4 to the current Junior Library. And in turn, the Library staff are packing up to become a mobile library—they’ll be bringing the books directly to each classroom!
What’s coming for Prep?
Instead of one open space, we’ll have two dedicated rooms in Prep (one for each age group), with a brand new purpose built bathroom separating them. An extension to the current Prep building will provide more space for our students, enabling us to provide extra spots in Prep every day of the week!
There are grand designs for our outdoor space too—a new play area and deck which will wrap around the current Prep building, providing more opportunities for students to explore the outdoors and engage more with the natural environment in their play.
We’re excited! Chat to the Prep teachers for more information about how you can help out during this transition period. Do you know someone who’d like to enrol their child in our expanded Prep? Places will be limited so enquire now.
