Leaflet On Christchurch School Options

8 November 2012


Media Release


A leaflet describing possibilities for modern 21st century schools in greater Christchurch will be delivered to 160,000 local households over the next week.

Deputy Secretary Regional Operations, Katrina Casey, says a large number of schools have been damaged and the Ministry of Education wants teachers, parents and students to think imaginatively about what the new schools and facilities might look and feel like.

Ms Casey says people movement, land changes and building damage as a result of the earthquakes are the catalysts for change.

“A lot of schools across greater Christchurch were built in the 1950’s. We now have the chance to think in new ways and provide greater Christchurch with the best new facilities found anywhere.

“Today’s learners are dynamic multi-taskers who are technology literate and we want their schools to reflect that,” Ms Casey says.

“Schools will always be an integral part of the community, so we want everyone to stay involved in the education renewal process.”

The leaflet will start appearing in letterboxes from today.
