From Senior School Notes in the Magazine :
Plans have been drawn up and submitted for tender for a block of changing rooms to be built on our new Hawthornden fields – the site of the future new school. It is hoped to have this much needed block completed by the end of the year. At the moment there are no changing or toilet facilities at all on these top fields.
A new Science laboratory is in the last stages of construction. It lies immediately behind the Art Room and became necessary with the introduction of the new Science syllabus.
Plans have been passed for extensions to the Manual Training Block. It is hoped that the building will be complete before the end of the year.
It has been accepted by the Provincial Administration that the W.B.H.S. will move to the Labia site. Additional ground has been acquired on this estate and we expect the move to take place inside five years. Our committee has been promised that it will be consulted at every stage of development, so we anticipate an eminently satisfactory new school. When the High School moves, the Junior School will occupy our present buildings until, eventually, they will also move to a site close to the High School.
