Be our Sporting Hero
Due to be completed towards the end of 2016, we invite our Aloysian Community to Be our Sporting Heroes by contributing to the fundraising appeal, either personally or through corporate sponsorship. Donors from our Aloysian Community will become our Sporting Heroes, their names will be recognised in the building in a unique way and we will invite them to the Opening Ceremony.
About the new sports facility
The building of the new Sports Facility on the Garnethill campus will transform the health and fitness of our pupils, diversify our sports provision, improve extra-curricular activities, offer year-round weather cover, reduce travel time and pupils studying PE will be able to study 9 subjects instead of 8.
The Sports Facility will be situated on the corner of Renfrew Street and Dalhousie Street.
