Fairhaven opens its new build­ing

Te Puke Times - - NEWS -

The dream of a multi-pur­pose room has be­come a re­al­ity at Fairhaven School.

The school’s new build­ing was of­fi­cially opened re­cently fol­low­ing a great deal of hard work by a num­ber of ded­i­cated peo­ple.

Prin­ci­pal Paul Hunt says the Fairhaven Fundrais­ing As­so­ci­a­tion works tire­lessly to co-or­di­nate the school’s an­nual Thinkwa­ter BOP Fireworks Gala and funds raised at the gala have gone into the new build­ing.

“The board of trustees has also sup­ported the build and there have been grants from TECT ($120,000), Lot­tery Grants Board, ($120,000), The Lion Foun­da­tion ($30,000) and One Foun­da­tion ($10,000) that paid for ap­prox­i­mately half the build­ing,” he says.

“We now have an amaz­ing fa­cil­ity which will en­hance the types of ac­tiv­i­ties we can of­fer at school, and for our com­mu­nity to use.”

Mir­rors on the wall add a new di­men­sion to the ac­tiv­i­ties.

Paul says he wants to thank Shawn Wil­liamson Build­ing, Fre­quency NZ, Ar­chi­tects 44 and all the trades­peo­ple who worked on the build­ing.

“It looks amaz­ing,” he says.

Fairhaven School pupils get their first look in­side the school’s new multi-pur­pose build­ing.
