'Building the Boarding' Diary
Follow the building of our brand new boarding house here...
The diggers move in and start moving soil and breaking up the grass next to the MUGA where the Boarding House will be built.
The ground is marked out and leveled off ready for the foundations of the building to be laid.
In a very sunny November the foundations are laid and we can start to see the blueprints come to life.
The snow stopped some building for a couple of days, but the site staff were back building as soon as they could. Everyone is excited to see the progress in the new year, when the walls start going up.
As if by magic, January 2011 is upon us and the walls are going up at a very quick pace. The boarding house is a reality now and is getting more exciting by the week.
The building is getting taller and taller, with the second floor now in place and on Valentines Day the first windows went in, taking the first steps to becoming water tight and nearer to a completed building.

As Spring is in the air the boarding house is looking closer to a real building everyday. Students and Staff returned to The Academy on Tuesday 1st March to find windows fitted and the shape of the building really emerging.
The boarding is looking more and more complete as days go by, and since returning from the Spring Break, it is looking fantastic.
The Boarding House is finished and opened in September 2011
