Our Assembly Hall has played a huge part in our school community. It’s been home to it all, from band concerts to polling booths, and the uniform shop to fetes. And after 62 years of non-stop use, it’s well and truly ready for an upgrade.
We’re excited to announce a new project to deliver an amazing new Assembly Hall for our Clovelly Public School community.
Where it all began
On April 10 April 1959, Clovelly Public School’s new Assembly Hall was opened with an impressive ceremony. It was called a great parent triumph. The Clovelly P&C had run an extraordinary fundraising campaign for the construction of a purpose-built assembly hall. As well as raising £2000, an impressive sum in those days, the P&C gained the commitment of the Department of Education to provide £3 for every £1 raised by the P&C. The parents also obtained financial support from the Randwick and Waverley Councils.
For the last 62 years, the Assembly Hall has been a hub of activity at our school. It’s held assemblies, fetes, meetings, concerts, speech days, polling booths and so much more. It’s done a lot for our school and now, it’s well and truly ready for an upgrade!
In winter it’s cold and draughty, in summer it’s hot and uncomfortable and when the rain pours down, it leaks. The building lacks adequate spaces for all it’s different uses, from band rehearsals to the uniform shop, and the toilet blocks … well, we all know they could be improved!
We’re committed to working together with our school community to deliver the best possible learning facilities for students.
