On 26 October, HM Government of Gibraltar set out its plans for new schools in Gibraltar and it can confirm that ground has already been broken for the first of these schools.

Work to construct Notre Dame First School on Winston Churchill Avenue has already started, with the school’s completion date being set for August 2018.

On Wednesday 6th December, the contractor will commence piling operations which are planned to be completed before the Christmas break. These operations will take place from 8am to approximately 7pm Monday to Friday, with some additional work being required at weekends.

The Government regrets the inconvenience to residents of the area during this pre-Christmas period and appreciates their patience and cooperation.

Acting Director of Education, Darren Grech said, “This work will be a short-term inconvenience for all of us but, in the long run, I am sure that the long-term benefits of having a new school will outweigh the current difficulties.”

The Gibraltar Magazine
The Gibraltar Magazine boasts a spirited history dating back 20 years, when it was first called ‘Discover Gibraltar’. Founders Andrea Morton and Howard Fuller established the publication in 1995, with the aim of ‘promoting Gibraltar and its people’ and ensuring the content is interesting and relevant both to locals and tourists. Our mantra remains the same to this day, even though a new team has driven the magazine since 2015, keeping it current and leading locally in content and layout.
