LUMEN Christi Col­lege has be­gun re­fur­bish­ing its 33-year-old cam­pus, start­ing with the re­cently ren­o­vated English block and soon-to-be-fin­ished main en­trance.

The English block has been ren­o­vated to mir­ror the bright in­te­rior of the ju­nior and se­nior tran­si­tion cen­tres which were opened in 2012 and 2015.

The new in­te­rior is fully en­closed with car­peted floor­ing, bright walls, high ceil­ings and nat­u­ral light, pro­vid­ing a wel­com­ing and weather safe area for the stu­dents.

New lock­ers were also in­stalled as was a dis­play mon­i­tor, air con­di­tion­ing and new pro­jec­tors.

Lumen Christi Col­lege prin­ci­pal Dar­ren O’Neill said while the col­lege has worked hard to add new fa­cil­i­ties over the last three decades, in­clud­ing a per­form­ing arts theatre, sports cen­tre, tech­nol­ogy rooms and tran­si­tion cen­tres, it is also es­sen­tial to en­sure that the orig­i­nal class rooms are kept up-to­date.

“It is im­por­tant that we look to up­grade our teach­ing fa­cil­i­ties so as to make them vibrant, invit­ing and con­tem­po­rary spaces in which stu­dents can learn com­fort­ably and ef­fec­tively,” he said.

“The well-be­ing and aca­demic en­cour­age­ment of our stu­dents is at the heart of all our projects.

“By im­prov­ing their learn­ing en­vi­ron­ments, we en­cour­age stu­dents to take pride in their col­lege.”

The re­cent re­fur­bish­ment is part of a larger scope of works to im­prove the learn­ing en­vi­ron­ments.

The Hu­man­i­ties and So­cial Sci­ences (HASS) block is next to be re­fur­bished with works cur­rently un­der­way and sched­uled for com­ple­tion be­fore the 2018 school year com­mences.

The Col­lege Re­fur­bish­ment Plan will then see the cafe­te­ria up­dated fol­lowed by the maths and sci­ence blocks.
