THE next stage of redevelopments at Emmanuel Christian School have begun, with principal Scott Winkler and chief executive officer David Gillman excited for the changes.
Mr Winkler said the school had signed the contract for a major development to the main courtyard area.
“This is an example of the school continuing to invest in improving the infrastructure here,” Mr Winkler said.
“We want our students to have not just the highest quality Christian education, but great facilities as well.”
The developments will see the central area of the school resurfaced with better access to the school office and classrooms, new trees, and contemporary outdoor teaching and play spaces for both primary and secondary students.
“The Coronavirus pandemic has impacted this project’s timing, but we’re delighted that things are moving ahead with an expected completion date of late October,” Mr Winkler said.
Mr Winkler said it was part of a continuing long-term plan to revitalise the school, with there being a number of other projects in the pipeline
“Earlier this year we completed a refurbishment of our Home Economics area, which now complements the use of our industrial kitchen and barista training facility in our new Performing Arts and Music Centre,” he said.
“We’re hoping to get the green light for future classroom upgrades as our enrolments continue to grow.
“Our parents love the fact that we are values driven and that children feel safe, valued and have the opportunity to thrive at an affordable Christian school.”
