Plenty Valley Christian College last Wednesday marked the official opening of its new extension, the Secondary Walkways, crediting ‘God’s abundant goodness’ with the completion of the learning area.

The extension involved a major facelift to the college’s central secondary school area with the addition of a new covered area, updated stairways, landscaping, an elevator, walkways between classrooms and multiple open learning spaces.

“We had a particularly bad winter and realised that the kids were unprotected, the secondary [students] really had no undercover space and that the teachers were taking their students outside to areas that weren’t very conducive to open learning,” principal John Metcalfe said.

“We are very pleased to have it finished.”

Mr Metcalfe thanked Federal Member for McEwen Rob Mitchell as the individual ‘feeding the ball to the goal kickers’ after the government provided $800,000 as part of its grant system for the extension.

Mr Mitchell said the new area had made a ‘real difference’ and would ‘nurture and inspire’ students.

“What [today] is about is our community coming together and connecting and doing the most important thing we can do, which is educate our children and give them every opportunity we can in life,” he said.

The walkways have been utilised by students for nearly two years, though the college was only able to celebrate this year due to the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic.
