After many months of planning, the design for the school’s new addition was approved by the Borough of Tinton Falls Planning Board on Dec. 13. The final stages of planning are currently being completed, and sitework is expected to begin in the very near future.
“We were thrilled to have been approved by the Planning Board of Tinton Falls,” said Mairead Clifford, co-chair of the Construction Committee.”Our committee has worked hard to design a building which will serve generations of young women of Trinity Hall. It’s going to be beautiful!”
The addition will feature 12 new classrooms, two multi-purpose rooms, a chapel, new bathrooms and a changing room, and a main staircase that doubles as a gathering space. Additional parking will be built, giving more room for visitors, students, and teachers.
As people outside of our immediate community hear about the new construction, many are admiring the pride and dedication the committee has shown. Regional newspapers such as The Asbury Park Press are following and reporting on the progress.
“All of the buzz regarding the addition is a bonus for Trinity Hall. It is very exciting and encouraging for everyone involved in the project,” Clifford said.
Faculty and students alike are looking forward to what the new addition will offer. “While Trinity Hall at its current size is a very cozy and close-knit community, the proposed expansion will allow for exciting new opportunities for both students and faculty, while maintaining the school’s original spirit,” said Dana Cain, world history and theology teacher.
“I am excited about more room being added to our small school and the great change these plans will bring!” sophomore Maggie Ward remarked. “With the new classrooms and new halls, there will surely be adjusting, but I think we are ready for the change.”
