EMMANUEL Christian School has recently put the finishing touches on the refurbishment of its home economics area, which saw the addition of new flooring, stainless steel workbenches and ovens.
Emmanuel cooking teacher Cheryl McNeil said she was delighted with the refurbishment.
“It’s all happened pretty quickly,” she said.
“Most of the work happened over the summer break holidays, which was great – the students are really loving the new space.”
The work forms part of a larger long-term project to revitalise the school.
Emmanuel Christian School principal Scott Winkler said the investment was partly due to increased interest in the school.
“Emmanuel is a growing school,” he said.
“We’re pleased that parents are coming from all over Hobart to experience what we have here at Emmanuel.
“Our affordable fees make us attractive and our facilities are constantly being improved – this is just the beginning.
“The budget has been approved to see the courtyard area completely re-landscaped, with all the old paving taken out.
“It’ll look like a brand-new school when the landscaping is completed.
“We’re looking forward to showing it off when it’s done.”
The work is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
