BOT Update 27/09/2017

Block One Upgrade

All of the necessary documentation has now been supplied to the Ministry of Education regarding the refurbishment of Block One.  We have been through a rigorous tender process to appoint a builder for the work. We are very pleased to say that Cook Brothers have been awarded this project and we are looking forward to them starting work soon.  This is approximately a 12 week programme and we are expecting to have the classrooms ready to go for the new school year in 2018.

Senior Playground

We are so super excited to say that we now have all the necessary funds to get this work underway to build this much needed play area for our senior students!  

The BOT want to say a huge thank you and recognise the Ashgrove PTA for raising the vast majority of the funds for this significant play area.  We are very appreciate of all the hard work, effort and time it has taken to raise the necessary money for what will be an amazing space for our children.  

Below is the finalised design.  How good does that look!  We are hoping to have this work completed in December.

School Hall

As the school hall is a Ministry asset, they will be undertaking the project and work for re-cladding of the school hall.  Fortunately the BOT were able to choose the profile and the colour of the new cladding which has now been done and authorised by the Ministry.  The work for the cladding will be undertaken during the summer holidays, so that it has little impact on the children and the use of the hall.

Perimeter Fencing

During the term three holidays the fencing will be reinstated and gates will be installed by the Allenvale entry.  There will also be a new gate at the Seddon Street entrance.  The park boundary fence will be installed as well. This will ensure that all children will be safe and this will be the first time in the history of the school's existence that it will be fully fenced on all perimeters. All of this fencing work is being funded and completed through the Ministry of Education.
