There was a roar from the crowd when the ribbon was cut and Covenant’s new C-Block was officially unveiled. Mr Rusin addressed the students, staff, parents
and invited guests during the ceremony saying its construction came from “a position of gratitude to God, who gives us more than we deserve”.
On the lower level, the new facility provides added classrooms, and dedicated music and junior art rooms. Upstairs, at ground level, there is a welcoming
reception area for parents, executive staff rooms, an open-plan administration space, sick bay and a student reception.
Current board member and parent from Covenant’s earliest years Philip Selden said executive staff were now all together. “It’s exciting to see how it has
grown and progressed,” he said. “And it’s wonderful that Covenant has maintained a Christian focus, and not departed from its origins.”
A construction masterpiece of C-Block is its tunnel connecting the junior school to secondary, its walls adorned with photographic highlights of school
Mr Rusin said the changes were dramatic. “Few from Covenant’s first days, in a hall next to a church, would ever have imagined seeing what we have today,”
he said. “May we never take for granted what God has given us.”
