Cornerstone’s BER (Building the Education Revolution) Multi-Purpose Centre was officially opened today, with dignitaries, family members, students and members of the Busselton community present to witness the event.
Thanks to funding from the Australian Federal Government, partnered with the significant investment of time and expertise by College staff and Board members, the project was completed. Housing four classrooms, a common-room for senior students, plus a huge sporting hall and associated facilities, the benefits to the Cornerstone community will be enormous. One of the classrooms has been fitted out as a Primary Art room, and another as an additional computer lab.
During the official opening, College Principal, Mr Bruce Douglas welcomed those visiting us on this occasion. Hon. Troy Buswell MLA, Hon. Adele Farina MLC, former College Principal, Graeme Cross, Board members and parties involved with the construction were present.
The ceremony included a musical item from the Primary School Choir, a message of thanks from Graeme Cross, as well as a letter read by Bruce Douglas,sent by the Australian Government specifically for the event.
Also welcomed to the stage were the College’s new student leaders, Charlotte Goodbody and Ben Casaburi, who were a part of the ribbon cutting ceremony. The unveiling of the plaque, provided by the Federal Government was performed by Principal’s past and present, in a show of partnership in the project.
The College staff and leadership are immensely grateful to all those who have contributed towards the completion of this project, and know that students for many years to come will benefit with the facility that now lays at the heart of the Cornerstone campus.
