New Science building 

In 2018, a new science building was commissioned with state-of-the-art labs and teaching equipment to enrich the curriculum of our science classes. Each classroom is fitted with a smart board and transformable desks, allowing students to adapt the space to fit their needs. 

Maths renovations

In 2019, renovations were completed on the school's Maths building. Featuring new classrooms and flexible shared learning areas, the building gives students the space to work both in- and outside of traditional learning settings.
