Raising one million dollars is a towering goal. But it’s the goal necessary to meet the need for a contemporary, all-inclusive learning space for our students.

Today, we celebrate because our extremely generous community prove that this is not out of reach! It is people such as past member of staff, Susan Waddell (1997-2006), who is helping us to reach this target of delivering the Hornsby Learning Hub for St Paul’s.

Susan recalls her time at St Paul’s with gratitude, the challenges and rewards she encountered.

“Since then, St Paul’s has excelled in promoting present and future initiatives which my grandsons, Matthew and James Waddell (Sargood House), are thriving and benefiting from.”

The Hornsby Learning Hub will be located in the ‘heart’ of St Paul’s and with the school’s chapel – the ‘heart’ of school life – we are offering chapel chair plaques at $1500 to support the build of the learning hub and students of St Paul’s.

Susan says, “The chapel is very special to me indeed, so it is a privilege to have our family name recorded here.”
