Eden Christian Academy held an official opening last Sunday for their new classrooms. Plans for the facility began in May 2016 and exactly a year later, were completed.
The facility holds two specialist classrooms, for sciences and for Information and Communication Technology (ICT). There are also bathroom facilities for the senior students.
The decision to make more classrooms was to enable the school to deliver the best possible service and education to the students, says Principal Willem van Rensburg.
He says the opening day went very well, with plenty to do for students of Eden Christian Academy and their families. “We had brunch at the LaValla functions and conference centre, performances by talented artist Colin King, a performance by Dennis Marsh and some of our students from his most recent album, ‘I Believe’. There was also a variety of games for families,” he said.
Waikato Councillor Jacqui Church and Stephanie Henderson, a parent at Eden, did the honour of opening the building.
With the new classrooms open and ready for use, the school is now planning the next upgrades.
“Our attention now shifts to the development of our new play area and sports fields and then providing specialist facilities for technology, similar to the new facility,” Willem said.
