HORSHAM’S Holy Trinity Lutheran School opened part of its new $8 million middle years precinct on Thursday.
Holy Trinity principal Daniel Weller said the building would house special rooms to help students in years seven to nine make the transition to secondary college.
The opening ceremony on Thursday with Member for Mallee Andrew Broad represented stages 1B and 2A of the project, which cost $5 million with federal and state government support.
“With our expansion from primary into middle schooling, we obviously need the facility to support our years seven to nine program,” Mr Weller said.
“We are doing the project in stages so it is economically viable.
“By mid year we will have stage 2B complete.”
Mr Weller said the junior school would also be able to use the precinct’s manual arts, woodwork, food technology, kitchen and cafe, drama and music rooms.
“The next stage will incorporate a 2D and 3D arts block with arts and drawing as well as sculpting,” he said.
Stage 2B will be completed with the help of a $1.32 million grant from the state government.
