Capital Works

Our Foundation supports the School’s strong commitment to delivering a relevant, first-class learning environment that facilitates exceptional learning outcomes for our students. 

It does so by financially contributing to the development of our educational facilities and resources, in line with the School’s Master Plan (A 2025 Vision), to ensure that our students are continually inspired, engaged and challenged to reach their potential.
