Balmoral School Redevelopment

 

The Ministry of Education has presented the Board with a concept plan for the School Building Redevelopment that they would like to proceed with. On Monday 13th March 2017 the School Board of Trustees held a community meeting to give everyone an opportunity to come along and hear about the progress they have been making with our rebuild options, see the concept plans and discuss their thoughts with the Board Members.

It was heartening to see so many parents present at the BoT Property Information Meeting on Monday night. It was also fortunate the Minister Nikki Kaye sent a letter to the school at 2.30pm on that same Monday indicating that she would increase the funding for the rebuild by $5.6 million.

The Board believes that this increase gives us a greater chance of being able to develop classrooms that can appropriately meet the needs of our community into the future.
