A Major Redevelopment of the Chanel Classroom Block Gets under Way

Clever design along with major funding support from our Proprietor,  the Hamilton Catholic Diocese, will see the upper level of Chanel Block (where English and Social Sciences teach) converted from 9 ½ classrooms to 15 teaching spaces and 2 Faculty Hubs over the next 15 months. Mitchells Construction are the major contractor and they will be moving on site tomorrow 9th June. 

The project includes a series of striking new pillars on both the street and courtyard frontages, representing visual examples of St John, Hato Hoani. The pictures here are early concepts, and the final artwork has changed but we promise you it will be impressive, and a vast improvement on our current street frontage.  A bright new artificial surface on the courtyard along with 6 new basketball hoops, seating and shade will provide an attractive outdoor space for our men. And they will be delighted too that we’re replacing our ageing toilet block!

There is inevitable disruption to students and staff over the construction period, but it will be worth it!
