Exciting Times Ahead!

Ease the squeeze….

Due to Rangiora’s population growth Ashgrove will be receiving eight new classrooms. Rooms 19-22 will be replaced and we will be gaining an additional four teaching spaces. This new building, which is currently in the design phase, will be situated in the north-west corner of the school site to take advantage of the park aspect and senior court area.

In addition to this we are looking forward to working alongside Allenvale School to create two satellite classrooms within the new building, to cater for children with special needs from our community, making a total of ten new classrooms.

The new building will provide a modern learning environment (MLE) benefitting from new technologies. We recommend you have a look at Campbell Live’s news item, “Bringing the Kiwi Classroom into the Digital Age”  to get a feel for the type of learning environment we are working to achieve for our students.

We are hopeful that building will begin in April/May and be completed by the start of term 4, 2014. We intend to keep you up to date on this blog with information on building progress, plans and photos, right up until the grand opening!
