When the School opened its new facilities at the Infants Campus at Sans Souci in 2017, Mr Honor recalls overhearing a Kindergarten boy saying: “This is like a dream come true!”
This Kindergarten boy is now in Middle School and enjoying the many benefits of our new facilities which have now transformed our Hurstville Campus.
On Monday 20 November, we welcomed Senator the Honorable Jenny McAllister, Assistant Minister for Climate Change and Energy, to our Hurstville Campus to recognise the generosity of the Federal Government for their contribution toward the construction of the Atrium Building and The Chapel Gallery.
A group of musically talented Senior School students, The Silver Reeds, welcomed the Senator and distinguished guests to the Recognition Ceremony with a rousing musical performance.
Our 2024 School Captains, Alex Putra and Sophie Cox, officially welcomed the Senator and distinguished guests, and Melody Tambun performed an accomplished rendition of the National Anthem.
After hearing from Mr Honor, Principal, the Senator addressed guests and, following remarks and a prayer by Mr Michael Newman, SGCS Board Deputy Chair, unveiled a plaque to officially recognise the Federal Government’s significant contribution toward the Hurstville Campus Development Project.
Following the official ceremony, Senator McAllister was escorted on a tour of the Atrium Building, The Chapel Gallery and Terrace Building, followed by refreshments on the Terrace Rooftop Courtyard with students, parents and staff. Our Year 8 students were delighted to have Senator McAllister sit in on their class and interact with them.
Investment in education brings enormous rewards and we are deeply thankful to live in a country where our government values education and is generously committed to it.
