Change in secondary education on the horizon in Clare Valley
It's the end of an era and the beginning of a new opportunity for more education opportunities for children and their families in South Australia's Clare Valley, as Horizon Christian School acquires Vineyard Lutheran School.
Horizon Principal Mike Clisby confirmed with Flow on Tuesday before an information evening Tuesday night that Vineyard had done great work for families for decades, and a new chapter would begin from next year.
"We started in 1994 with just 27 students and now we've got about 460 through to year 12. We've been enjoying the opportunities God has given us to bless families, look after children and have them build into all sorts of career paths after school.
"Horizon is purchasing Vineyard Lutheran school. I acknowledge the great work that they've done in that school and the long legacy, they've been open about 20 years. For us its time for a fresh injection for that school.
"We've got quite a bit of interest and we're quite excited about that. (Tonight's meeting) is open for anyone who'd like to come down this evening.
The meeting will occur in the Vineyard Lutheran School stadium from 7:30pm.
