In a year’s time Gonzaga College will be sixty years old. On 4th October Fr. John Dardis, Jesuit Provincial, marked its maturity when he blessed and formally opened the college’s new buildings. A capacity crowd of parents filled the hall in a spirit of joy in the new building that provides space for education, for gathering, for hospitality and creativity. The extension of new classrooms, science facilities, IT/Computer Room, Theatre, Library and Dining Hall finally provides facilities which are commensurate with the quality of the education. Jesuit education always looks to the future and prays that a new building be one of service in which potential is developed and glory is given to God’s name. The picture here shows the hall during the visit of Fr General Adolfo Nicolás SJ, the first use of the hall for a public meeting.
