New gymnasium at SGB

The masterplan

BONAIRE–Last Friday was the official opening of gymnasium at “Scholen Gemeenschap Bonaire” (SGB). This happened under the watchful eye of RCN-OCW department head Oleana, Commissioner Cecilia and SGB director Van Efferink.

The gym was completed and put into use by the secondary education school community on October 20th, 2017. With this project, the first step has been taken towards improving new housing of the SGB.

Three more related projects are ready to go, including the expansion of the “Liseo” on Kaya Amsterdam, so that the MAVO, HAVO and VWO can be accommodated there. This extension will be put into use during the academic year 2018-2019.

The new MBO complex will be put into operation during the 2021/2022 school year and that of the VMBO and “Speciale Leerplaatsen” mid-2022.

The new master plan for SGB has a clear separation of target groups. Each target group has its own building.

These four projects for SGB are part of the educational housing plan for Bonaire, which is jointly financed by the Public Entity Bonaire and the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science OCW. On behalf of OCW, The Central Government Real Estate Agency coordinates the implementation of the various projects that are part of this plan.

The gym was designed by Streefkerk Architects & Consultants, in collaboration with DMV Architecten. VOF Haafkes Bonaire built them.

The architect of Liseo and MBO is Jacobs Architekten in collaboration with atelier PRO. VOF Haafkes Bonaire is working on the realisation of a new Liseo building.
