THE development of a Secondary Teaching and Learning Centre (STLC) at Scone Grammar School is progressing well, but there’s still plenty of work to be done.
A ‘sneak peek’ party on Friday night enabled guests to witness the opening of stage 1 (a) of the STLC, which includes four multi-purpose downstairs classrooms, fitted with state-of-the-art furniture and modern 21st century technology.
The event also doubled as a fundraiser, with live and silent auctions taking place.
Nearly $4 million has been spent on the centre since construction began in January 2016.
Scone Grammar School’s Alice Forsythe thanked those who had contributed to the building’s development so far.
“[The funds have] stemmed from a BGA Government grant and the generosity of people within the community,” she said.
“We now need to raise additional funds to complete the exciting next stage so we can further enhance the learning opportunities for our students.”
Guest speaker on the night was former Australian rugby player James Holbeck.
During the course of his eight-year career, Holbeck battled countless injuries and disciplinary issues before his eventual retirement in 2003.
In his current role as a motivational speaker at schools, he aims to help prepare young athletes for the future by promoting the importance of resilience and self-respect.
