The Augustinianum will soon house students in an auxillary branch.
The brand-new building is too small for the student increase, according to the Eindhovens Dagblad. Rector Maarten de Veth explains that the building is based on a constant number of students. However, every year more students attend the school in the Irisbuurt in Eindhoven. It is likely that ‘the Aug’ will increase to about 1100 students in the coming school year, while there are between 900 and 1000 students currently.
De Veth confirms to the newspaper that the school is ‘up to its max’. However, according to him, a student quota is not an option. That causes disappointment and unrest. That is why we opt for an auxillary branch in a building in the neighborhood. Which building it will be, the rector does not want to say, because the contracts have not been signed yet.
One hundred to two hundred students will be taught at the auxillary branch. Probably different groups. The first graders remain in the main building.
