A Note on Summer Enhancement Works


We are heading the into final stages of the facility enhancement started in July 2016. The first and second grade classrooms are completed, beautifully equipped, and the new furniture will begin to be installed on Monday in order to fulfill our philosophy of flexible seating.  It is an amazing new learning space, which is sure to enjoyed by our students for years to come.  

In addition, the Sports Hall and the new athletic field are taking shape and are on schedule according to plans. Next week, the Director will send some additional information about the campus enhancements, which will undoubtedly improve our learning environment.
