On the 8th September, Principal Amy Whyte was joined by distinguished guests, including Minister for Education, Training and Skills, Blair Boyer, Jayne Stinson MP and John Gardner MP, as well as governing council members, the capital works team, staff and student leaders to celebrate the official opening of the Performing Arts Centre.
Festivities commenced with a traditional dragon dance in recognition of Plympton International College’s standing as the only Chinese bilingual college in South Australia.
Special guests and Kaurna elders Uncle Rod and Uncle Fred performed welcome to country and a smoking ceremony.
The state-of-the-art facility is a proud new chapter in our college history. The Performing Arts Centre is the first stage in the major re-development of the college as we develop our ambitious master plan.
“Next year will see the introduction of a college musical. Opportunities like these are now possible because of the facilities our students have every day to learn in,” said Mrs Whyte.
“In the spirit of the Moon Lantern Festival, we feel to have already been granted good fortune through the introduction of our new facilities, so today we share thanks for our blessings with family and friends of the college community.”
