How do we see the 'Maria Fidelis' of the future?........
Surface to Air ( a firm of consultants) spent the day with us on Thursday 25th November 2009. Their 'mission' was to find out what we wanted in our new school and to gain an uderstanding of our Vision and Ethos.
The day was attended by a variety of people connected to the school and included students, staff, governors and parents. Our students (representing each year group from Year 7 - 13) acquitted themselves very well and made a tremendous contribution to the discussion. They provided all of us with a refreshing and interesting view of our present school and had many innovative ideas to share about what they wanted in the new school. It was also interesting to see that whilst they wanted a new school and faciliites, they were also conscious of the need to preserve our history and heritage and have it represented in the new building.
The next stage will see our discussions and ideas translated into a design brief for our approval.
