Boarding has gone up a notch at Scots PGC
RENOVATIONS on Scots PGC's boarding houses are set to be complete by the end of the year with renovations about to begin on the senior boys' boarding house.
The senior boys' boarding house is the last stage of the project to be completed with works already completed on the rest of the accommodation precinct.
Acting principal Ben Manifold said the overall accommodation would be among the best in the country.
"The facilities will be of equivalent standard to anywhere in Australia," Mr Manifold said.
"They'll be fully air-conditioned and heated and every student will have their own room," he said.
Chair of the property and grants portfolio of the college council, David Cassels, said the facilities would mirror tertiary boarding.
"It will be university-style accommodation," he said.
"It will be right up there with university accommodation, which I think just shows the school's commitment to boarding."
Mr Manifold said having top facilities was important to the college.
"The school's motto is to aim high," he said.
"We want to ensure students have top facilities to help them achieve their full potential."
Mr Cassels said the school was committed to the parents who invested their money in the school.
"Sending your children to boarding school is a big commitment," he said.
"It's about making sure the parents get value for their money.
"These facilities are not only state-of-the-art, they will be safe and secure too."
Mr Manifold said the house would be ready by the end of the year, in time for the 2015 school year.
