The School Announcements and Waimakariri

The schools announcements by the Minister of Education have certainly got Christchurch going.  I attended four Christchurch schools and three of them are either gone or have question marks over them.

As for Waimakariri, two schools featured.

Kaiapoi Borough School is to get further land investigation done and it was further signalled that the Waikuku School would be transferred to a new site in Pegasus.

Neither was new information.

    In the school proposal pdf provided by The Press (, it notes Woodend School as “consolidate”. By the legend, “consolidate” signifies “moderate level change” to the school. Do you have any clarification for Woodend School?

      Hi Amy. I don’t think there is any doubt that Woodend School will continue, but the colour-coding is a complete mystery to me. The yellow seems to include schools like Woodend and Tuahiwi that are going to remain and others like Wainoni and Manning Intermediate that are going to close. Hammersley Park is going to close but is coloured for “rejuvenation”. I think this is the document that the news media used, with some justification, to announce death sentences on Avonside Girls’ and Shirley Boys’.
