Upgrading of Facilities
We continue to upgrade facilities in the areas of both academics and sports and seek regular support from Old Girls and parents for this purpose.
Spending funds to upgrade sports facilities in the school is as important as the building of class rooms in the present context of holistic education. Such upgrading on a regular basis has become very expensive but a necessary one if we are to maintain high standards in the sports arena.
Ladies’ College has made great strides in the field of sport especially athletics, rowing, and water polo. We now have a strong presence in the arena of inter school and national sports. Success covers a wide variety of sports practised today. This has been possible with the provision of facilities, good coaching and implementation of good sports discipline and management, However employment of coaches and provision of requisite standards of sports have become very expensive and cannot be covered by school fees.
We currently require funds for upgrading boats and oars. We have recently upgraded the facilities for tennis courts, the basket ball court
Upgrading IT facilities have also proved an expensive exercise as we need to invest in new generations of computers, technology and facilities for teaching. We also wish to use IT in the classrooms to improve the teaching methods..
We appeal to Old Girls and students to help us with this project both financially and with material pertaining to the school such as photographs, articles, newspaper clippings, old badges and trophies which they may possess or have received as part of their family heirlooms.
