Last Friday on 4 December 2015, a groundbreaking ceremony marked the official start of construction for our two new boarding houses. This project represents the achievement of the first phase of a development plan aiming to renovate boarding and teaching facilities throughout the School. The new boarding houses will act as a blueprint for further improvements in the rest of the School's boarding provision.
The ceremony was attended by members of staff and council, representatives from the architect and building companies and some parents. The houses are set to be opened for September 2017 and will become home to over one hundred girls as well as a number of staff.
A time capsule was also buried on the site containing scrapbooks, photos, ties and other memorabilia.
