The wall of the current Music/Drama Room will be extended toward the car park and other small learning areas will be added, along with a new resource area and an overhaul of Room 3.
Here is a basic floor plan.
Below is a graphic illustrating how the classes will be laid out from 2017 onwards. The new layout gives us three clear syndicates that will work together. Doors in-between these syndicate classes will aide the already established collaboration between teachers at RVS.
The building of this extension and the refurbishment of Room 3 will cause inconvenience and we apologise for this in advance. We will do all we can to keep the impact on student learning to a minimum during the construction process. We hope for the new class to be operational before the beginning of the 2017 school year.
Future development on the property has been, and is being considered as I write this. There were many reasons why a new, separate building was not decided on but the main reason was the possibility of future high schooling on the premises and the need to conserve space for this. Watch this space...
I wish to thank the Proprietors and the BOT for their ongoing work on this project.
Please feel free to ask me questions regarding the above announcement.
