Balmoral School Redevelopment
Ministry of Education Newsletter: Thursday 24th August
See below for the latest newsletter from the Ministry of Education regarding the Balmoral redevelopment.
Community Meeting: Tuesday 27th June
The design of the new classrooms has been progressing well since the Minister approved the additional funds last term. Below are the latest plans as at the end of June 2017.
These plans now have to go before a design review panel and costed by a quantity surveyor. There may be changes if both these reviews identify design problems or cost implications. More detailed drawings of actual layout will then be developed.
Community Meeting: Monday 13th March
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.
The presentation given at the meeting – not including the last minute information from Minister Nikki Kaye – can be viewed below.
