College calls for input on rebuild
Western Springs College is calling for input on its new master plan.
The co-educational college is to be rebuilt because 85 per cent of its buildings no longer pass earthquake safety standards.
The staff, principal and trustees have been hosting consultation meetings to seek feedback on the master plan for the new school, prepared by architects commissioned by the Education Ministry.
“The students, teachers and school community are excited at the opportunity to have a new school that reflects the demands of 21st century learning,” principal Ken Havill says.
A ministry architect has outlined the master plan in a series of consultation meetings with teachers and students, the Western Springs Parent Action Group, a public meeting, and at primary and intermediate schools in the Western Springs College enrolment zone.
“We’re had a great response to the master plan. There’s a real sense that this area is keen for a new school that has its roots in the local community and serves that community well,” Mr Havill says.
Planning is in its early stages and the master plan is available on the college website.
Mr Havill says the college will ensure it keeps parents, students and the wider school community informed as the project progresses.
