A new era for Anglican school

By RENEE FORD

CLARENCE Valley Anglican School's secondary campus at Clarenza was officially opened at a ceremony yesterday.

Planning for the school began three years ago and building started in November last year.

Now at the completion of stage one of the development, the 265-student school currently boasts 10 class rooms, computer laboratories, science laboratories and a library.

School principal and Anglican minister, Chris Ivey, said the school, when completed, would cost approximately $5 million to build.

"That includes a lot of infrastructure for the future and the next stages of development," he said.

"At this stage we have a 10-ear plan that would go right down to the oval, and includes a performing arts facility, more classrooms and science laboratories."

Mr Ivey hoped the school would facilitate up to 500 students by 2016.

Until September 11, when the new campus opened its classroom doors, students were temporarily taught at Grafton's Sisters of Mercy School.

"For us it's the beginning of a new time in the life of our school," Mr Ivey said.

Member for Page Ian Causley had the hon- ours of unveiling the commemorative plaque.
