Campus Master Plan

May 2020

Dear St. George's School Community:

You may recall the glorious sunny day in early March 2020, when we gathered for the Ceremonial Groundbreaking for our new buildings at the Senior School Campus.  It now seems like a long time ago!

At that time, our plan was to erect hoarding during Spring Break in order to be prepared to commence construction as soon as permitting allowed.  As the pandemic crisis emerged, together with social distancing measures, it became clear that there would be some delay in the issuance of the required permits. Accordingly, we delayed the erection of the hoarding so that the fields could continue to be enjoyed for as long as possible.

We are currently awaiting the formal issuance of an excavation permit and a development permit. Once those permits have been issued, we will be in a position to commence work with our chosen construction manager. It remains unclear how much longer will be required for this to occur, but we anticipate work commencing within the next few months.

I very much look forward to updating you when this occurs.  As always, if you have any questions, please contact me

Sincerely,
Dr. Tom Matthews

Headmaster
