On August 10th, the new class-room block promised by Mr. Heffron in February, was completed and occupied. It is made up of five classrooms, a teachers' staff room and a locker room. These rooms will be the home rooms of 5th, 4th and 3rd Years, while 1C is very proud of its new room.
The Hall, while definitely taking shape and promising to he the most outstanding of our buildings, is still not completed and much work has to be done.
However the sound of bulldozers hard at work below the school has delighted our ears. At last it has been started and Monaro High is to become one of the few High Schools in the State with its own Sports Oval; this will incorporate a full sized athletics' track, a football field, practice pitches for cricket and tennis courts. Additional land has been purchased from the S.M.A. for badly needed basketball courts.
Our school has certainly grown from the few rooms of 1955 and is indeed "In the Ascendant."
