The ground-breaking ceremony for Union Preparatory Schoolโ€™s new building expansion was held bright and early on Monday morning, 4 October.
โ€œThe schoolโ€™s increasing learner count signalled a need for more classrooms,โ€ commented SGB chairman, Mr Dave Stern.
โ€œThe extension will add three new classrooms – ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿฌ๐—บยฒ of extra space – to the school to accommodate the swell in the learner population.โ€
Construction of the new classrooms will be in full swing by the time the learners return to school next week and is expected to be completed in early 2022.
Once completed, they will be utilised as Grade 4 classrooms.
โ€œWe are very excited by these new developments and look forward to seeing the project completed,โ€ said Mr Stern. โ€œWe extend our grateful thanks to all those who went above and beyond in their duties to see this project realised, and, as always, are extremely grateful to the wonderful staff compliment at the school for their support as well as the UHS Development Trust for their support of and contribution to the project.โ€
