PM to open re­built col­lege

Central Leader - - News -

A re­vamped One Tree Hill Col­lege and its art col­lec­tion will be opened by Prime Min­is­ter John Key on Fri­day.

Mr Key will un­veil a plaque cel­e­brat­ing the $15 mil­lion re­build­ing of the col­lege, for­merly known as Pen­rose High School.

That will co­in­cide with sig­nif­i­cant changes for the school, in­clud­ing new fa­cil­i­ties, a grow­ing stu­dent roll and the re­hang­ing of its world-class art col­lec­tion.

The $1.8m col­lec­tion in­cludes works by Colin McCa­hon, Gretchen Al­brecht, WA Sut­ton, Pa­trick Hanly, Robin White and Ralph Hotere.

The re­hang­ing of the col­lec­tion will be cel­e­brated on Fri­day evening with a ticket-only cock­tail party.

Or­gan­iser Graeme Hunt says about 150 tick­ets have been sold so far and the school is hop­ing for at least 250 peo­ple on the night.

Tina Cross will en­ter­tain.

Tick­ets are $50. To book email gswest@onetreehill col­
