The science labs at St. Clare Centre are almost finished and ready for us. Begun six months ago with funding from the Tom and Carol Cracchiolo family, two rooms in the parish dispensary were converted into science labs for the girls at St. Clare. These rooms are located next to St. Clare and will give the girls a chance to put into practice what they are learning in their classrooms. Most important, the girls will not develop the scientific background needed to pursue professional careers which demand backgrounds in science.

As this work is completed, a foundation for the storeroom and generator is being dug and work on that part of the project continues
The refurbishing of the dispensary rooms is moving along. Walls are going up which will separate the dispensary from the science lab classrooms. In addition, skilled cement workers are putting in the supports for the lab tables and the lab sinks.
Science education and a good background in science are vital for the girls at the St. Clare Center. In order to make this happen, the Adrian Sisters at St. Clare requested funds from a donor so that science labs could be built. These labs will allow science to become an integral part of St. Clare’s curriculum and provide the girls with the educational opportunities they need to pursue higher education and future careers. Next door to St. Clare is the parish health dispensary, which contains several unused rooms. These rooms are in the process of being refurbished so that they can be converted into the site for the science labs.
