Day 658: Final Touches to the New Campus

Here’s what happened during the winter break!

Some final touches were made to the new campus site before the arrival of all the teachers on January 9th. A few empty plots of land were transformed into what are now playgrounds for the students. Before the installation of the playgrounds took place, the land was prepped and more trees were planted around the site, adding to the collection of trees that were planted before. Once this was done, work on the playgrounds began – the jungle gyms were built, swings installed and slides attached. To complete the look, grass was added to the area to give it a green and lively feel.  Cement was also laid down for the bicycle path that surrounds the area of the playground.

With the completion of the above, the school began to look and feel more whole and complete – just in time to welcome all our teachers back to prepare for a new school term!

Day 603: Front Car Park Almost Complete

November 15, 2016

The front of school car park is now almost complete! The cement flooring is finished and the shade awning for the school bus drop off point is installed. The ramps for the car park entrance and exit to the street level have also been completed and now what remains is only the installation of the car park gates. The multipurpose flooring for the gym room has been measured, rolled out and laid on the floor of the gym room giving the area a beautiful feel! Next, the flooring will need to be permanently fixed to the gym floor. The protective metal louvre for the swimming pool area is complete along with the shower area and sand wash flooring. New trees have been brought to the campus and planted in the L-shaped playground giving the area additional shade and a green, natural look. Final architectural finishes are underway including the assembling of cupboards in different pantry areas and the installation of air-conditioners in the classrooms.

Day 507: Teachers Visit New Campus

August 11, 2016

On the last day of August In-Service, the academic staff of Magic Years ventured outside the school premises to visit their future home and the site of the new Magic Years campus! In preparation for the move to the new campus (only a few short months away), the staff of Magic Years had the chance to see their future classrooms and learning spaces. One of the main objectives of this initial field trip was to “get a feel” for the spaces and to start visualizing the myriad possibilities for how learning environments could be designed.

Throughout the tour of the new campus, there were many positive reflections, “WOW” moments, excitement, and a genuine appreciation for being a part of this pivotal stage of the school’s growth and development. Overall, it was an “energizing” experience for the staff and it ended the two weeks of August In-Service with a huge buzz!

The masonry work for the new campus is now 90% complete. Walking into the buildings with the walls newly constructed gives a sense of the spacious classrooms and learning spaces for the students. The construction workers have also begun the plastering work for the classroom walls and the ceiling slabs. Plumbing work is now underway including the main water supply piping installation. A separate team of workers has also entered the site to initiate the electrical conduit installation.
