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.Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
