On the morning of 1 March Archbishop Buti Tlhagale presided over the opening and dedication of the Brother Anthony Wing at St David’s.
The development of the new wing started as a concept approximately four years ago, initially comprising six classrooms to answer the need for more teaching venues in the high school. Six sorely-needed classroom spaces, as well as a spacious, flexible, open plan learning area were created.
The sense of space and light created has been a wonderful bonus.
“We are immensely proud of our new Brother Anthony Wing. Whilst education centres on relationships between pupils and teachers, our new facilities provide the capacity for this relationship to be explored more fully. With our whole campus now wireless, we will be able to maximise the benefits of technology in our classrooms. The open plan learning area is being used for our iPad Pilot Project Programme being run in Grade 8, with the Maths Department present in the ground and first floors.
“We feel that naming this block after Br Anthony Doherty is a fitting tribute to a man who dedicated his life to the service of God and to the upliftment of others, and will serve as inspiration to the St David’s boys who are privileged enough to use this space and be part of the legacy of this wonderful Marist Brother,” said Ashleigh Knowles, assistant to the marketing director.
