The invited guests were almost overwhelmed when they entered the breathtaking auditorium of the Concert Hall with its magnificent award-winning acoustics. They were equally impressed by the Bright Centre and its contemporary learning spaces in the library, the science laboratories, the glass walled classrooms and the sunny common learning areas overlooking the courtyard. Architects, Thomson Rossi and Mossop Constructions captured our vision for the state-of-the-art project that will take Brighton Secondary School into the future. Business Manager, Sandra Hall, took a lead role and was a key player in the success of this project. The students are to be congratulated for their patience and attention to their studies throughout the Expansion Project. After a year in an alternative staffroom in Spence Hall, the staff love their new comfortable and stylish staffroom in which to recharge. The last phase of construction includes the restoration of Reception and the transformation of Spence Hall into a Senior Student Centre for Year 11 and 12 students, due for completion May 2015.
