KING EDWARD VII SCHOOL OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE NEW SCIENCE PAVILION & LABORATORIES

The 27th May was an auspicious occasion at King Edward VII School, as the newly renovated Science Laboratories and new Science Pavilion were officially opened. The Chairman of the Victor Daitz Foundation, Mr Sam Abrahams was on hand to officiate and cut the ribbon, and to declare the new pavilion and labs open!

The exceptional generosity of `The Victor Daitz Foundation and The Edgar Droste Trust respectively, both founded by philanthropic King Edward 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, 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.

The `Victor Daitz Foundation` and the `Edgar Droste Trust`, were appropriately acknowledged in the construct of the structure of the outdoor Science Pavilion.

The tradition of excellence continues at King Edward VII School
