Our Building Fund
When term time is over – building begins
The St Andrew’s Cathedral School Foundation Building Fund provides an important source of funding for capital projects and continuously maintaining and improving school facilities.
In 2018 the main focus of our fundraising was Chapter House. Having achieved a fundraising target beyond our expectations, Chapter House is set to be transformed into a 500 seat performance space that preserves the wonderful history and heritage of the building while making it a state of the art facility for students to learn and perform in. Plans have now been approved by the Heritage Council and it is anticipated that building will commence in July 2019 with a 2020 completion date planned.
February 2019 saw the opening of the new Sports Centre on the ground floor of St Andrew’s House which includes a strength and conditioning facility, a large open space for indoor sport, exercise, sprint training as well as additional teaching spaces.
Work has also been completed in the BBC with new classrooms on the plaza level and renovations of level 4 as well as new junior school classrooms on level 6 of St Andrew’s House and the creation of additional soundproof practice/tutorial rooms in our music centre on level 8 of SAH.
The need for fundraising continues and building fund donations go directly to support these projects.
