dedicated hard work and engineering

For more than 23 years, the old gymnasium, also called the Civic Center, has been home to the school’s biggest activities. However as times pass by, the Civic Center faced many challenges in terms of its capacity to cater to the rising needs of the students. For recent years, more and more students can no longer be accommodated due to its physical limitations.

Many also considered that while it was a conducive venue for SCC activities during the time it was built, its conditions made it obsolete and unresponsive to the growing demands for venue to hold the school’s big activities.

In February 2014, the building of the new gymnasium commenced and after eight months of dedicated hard work and engineering, the SCC Fellowship Center will finally be opened for the ommunity on October 1, 2014 at 9:00 in the morning.

The opening also highlighted a fellowship service led by the College Chaplain. A production and ecumenical show was also part of the celebration. (scc-mpcd-jkballentes)
