Library / Wonder Hub

We received some excellent news today. Our much beloved Library will be beginning its much deserved renovation and upgrade project on Monday 18th September.

Unfortunately this does mean that we will not be able to access the space for the remainder of the year but we are very excited to be starting with this fantastic project.

We remind students and families to take care around the construction site. There will be signs and diversions around the area for a while and it is important that these are respected.
