QUEENSTOWNS SHOTOVER SCHOOL EXPANDING RAPIDLY

 Print Page

March, 2020

Work began recently on the third and final stage of Queenstowns

Shotover Primary School.

Brosnan Construction has started on the earthworks for a 1428 square

metre building, running along the schools northern boundary, which will

expand the schools capacity from 650 to 900 students.

Principal Ben Witheford says it will accommodate two-and-a-half

learning habitats  equivalent to 10 classrooms.

It will also have a less daunting space for new entrants aimed at

easing them into school life, a dedicated radio station studio and a

TV/video suite.

The project, expected to be completed by November, also includes a

new 14-space staff carpark.

Witheford says the schools rolls sitting on 510, and although its growth

is determined by unpredictable residential development, he expects

itll take several years to reach capacity.

In other school building projects, Arrowtown Primarys in the middle of

an $11 million redevelopment to address its leaky building issues, while

an expansion of Wakatipu High School is in the final planning stages.

A primary school for up to 600 pupils at Hanleys Farm is expected to

open in 2022.
