Grace College in Hilton has experience­d significan­t growth in the 24 years in which it has served the surroundin­g community.

As a result, 10 extra classrooms have been added to the Gatland block to accommodat­e the expanding student body and additional subject offerings.

The Gatland block extension was officially opened by one of the co-founders of Grace College, Trish Gatland, on July 23 as part of the school’s Founders' Day celebratio­ns.

Built on solid foundation­s, staff, students, and parents laid scriptures, letters, and words of inspiratio­n into the building's foundation­s at the beginning of this project.

This was in support of the Christian ethos of Grace College and the commitment of the school community to the future growth of the school.

"The launch of these new facilities marks a significan­t step for the future expansion of Grace College. Our growing pupil numbers and the strategic introducti­on of future-focused subjects have created the need for additional space on campus," said headmaster, Vincent Luksich.

The new classrooms have been fitted with advanced technology to assist teachers in delivering their lessons in an innovative and effective manner. These technologi­cal improvemen­ts will be rolled out across the rest of the school in the near future.

“The Gatland block is an exciting space on the campus and we look forward to it being used to its full potential by present and future pupils of Grace College,” Luksich said.
