The new office reception area for students - wood recycled from the old gym floor.
The $20 million building programme is continuing to progress.
At the start of 2013, new Media, Music and Art rooms were opened in the old administration area. Drama rooms, the refurbished hall and a new cafeteria came into operation a few weeks into term one. The current stage is the reconstruction of H Block and the AV Room into purpose built Science rooms and some general-use classrooms as well as some changes in C block, making it the computer centre of the college. We expect D block to be demolished at the end of term two and a new 8 classroom block to be built in its place.
A new Sports Facility including a brand new large sized gym, weights room and staff work area was opened at the start of term 2, 2011, at the river end of our campus. Astroturf and tennis courts have also been relocated to the river end of the college and new cricket nets have been placed at the extreme river end of the new courts. The caretakers facilities have been rebuilt on the Hikurangi Street side of the fields.
A new administration and new "A" teaching block is now in full use. A new drive has been put through from Moonshine Road to Hikurangi Street and is now the main entry point for cars and buses.
NEW BLOCK IN USE
The new administration block is in full use with 8 teaching classrooms as well as office space. At present, work is progressing on the installation of an external lift to the block and the extension of an upstairs walkway to join it. Some interior photos of the new block are shown below.
