SCIENCE LABORATORY PROJECT ENTERS FINAL PHASE
The exceptional generosity of a Foundation and Trust respectively, both founded by philanthropic old boys prior to their passing, has ensured the well-being of the Physical Sciences at the School.
The `Victor Daitz Foundation`, and the `Edgar Droste Trust`, have contributed generously to the extensive upgrade of three legacy Science laboratories, and to the construction of an exceptional new outdoor laboratory, that ensures the School leads the way in terms of innovative teaching, and fittingly an environment to complement this objective. Conceived as a key component of the School`s strategic planning, and acknowledging the crucial need to contribute to improved outcomes in Science, this project was identified as a top priority need for the academic excellence imperative that is the true measure of the School`s status.
The existing laboratories were subjected to extensive makeovers in late 2014, are now complete, and provide fresh and stimulating educational space for the learners to wholeheartedly embrace their chosen subject. Radical departure from the traditional Science laboratories of old, has resulted in flexible classroom space that can be adapted to optimise the teaching and learning experience. Attention to detail has been given new meaning, and the superb facilities add yet another dimension of which the School is justifiably proud.
Completion of the new outdoor laboratory component in May, will ensure that Science enjoys the status that it deserves.
The `Victor Daitz Foundation` and the `Edgar Droste Trust`, will be appropriately acknowledged in the structure of the outdoor laboratory.
The tradition of excellence continues at King Edward VII School.
