Loads more room — and resources — at Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Catholic School

| June 24, 2014 | 0 Comments

Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Catholic School, situated in Liefde-en- Vrede, Mulbarton, south of Johannesburg, is growing.

Construction of the new intermediate phase building began in February 2014 and is expected to be ready for the 2015 school year. It will add 12 new classrooms, a suite for speech and occupational therapy, an aftercare centre, staffroom, an additional administration area, a canteen, science laboratory, music, art and media rooms and a library to the school.

Plans are to complete the new building and immediately move onto the construction of the school hall and high school. Sports facilities will also be developed as part of the construction.

The ground was consecrated, in the presence of the current learners and staff, by Reverend Father Malek Abou Tanous, the superior general of the Congregation of Maronite Lebanese Missionaries, on 12 February 2014 during his visit to its mission in South Africa.

Our Lady of Lebanon School is now in its fourth year and classes have grown from Grade RR to Grade 4. Class sizes are kept to approximately 20 learners to allow for the needs of each individual learner to be attended to.

The extended campus will allow the school to offer a rich variety of sporting codes and extramural activities.
