Third classroom arrives at Tihoi

The third classroom arrived at the Tihoi campus on Wednesday, 16 January to complete the replacement of the academic buildings.

This has been a much anticipated event as Tihoi farewelled the old prefabs in October last year. Memories of the negative classroom temperatures and wet whiteboards are well gone, as new modern learning environments now take centre stage at Tihoi. The three classrooms have been built by St Paul's Year 13 construction class. The first moved on site in 2016 and has excellent ablutions and laundry facilities attached; classroom two arrived in October 2018 and has a Chromebook charging area and a break out space for teaching; classroom three will be the home to English and we look forward to opening the Tony Hart Library in September this year – celebrating 40 years of Tihoi. The facilities are state of the art and we are very proud that these complement the opportunities that we have in our incredible centre.

2019 intake one are enjoying these modern teaching spaces for academic classes. Sixty-seven boys have settled into the Tihoi lifestyle as they embark on their life-changing journey. Whilst modern facilities adorn the campus, the ethos of ‘Back to Basics” reigns on. Cooking on the Stanley coal range cookers, bivvying out in the bush, rock climbing, abseiling and kayaking are just some of the early adventures these boys have completed.
