The latter includes the original chapel which has been rejuvenated and remains a central part of the school

The chapel has a shared wall with the hall, allowing for large school Masses and liturgies.

The centre is also designed for indoor sport, out of school hours care and music performances with three music suites.

The Aspire project involved gutting the original classrooms, enclosing an outdoor area and creating shared learning spaces for six early years classrooms.

Nicola Gill, APRIM at Emmaus, said the opening was a “wonderful way in which to acknowledge the amazing work that has gone into these two beautiful spaces”.

“To have both the Archbishop and Fr Roman Palma leading us in our liturgy was very special indeed.”

Director of Catholic Education SA Dr Neil McGoran and chair of South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools Professor Denis Ralph also attended.
