A recent ground-breaking ceremony marked the start of construction for the Christian Schools' Trusts' (CST) new Rolleston Christian School. Mark Larson, CST Chief Executive Officer (and pictured above, second left), says that 'while the majority of integrated schools have evolved out of existing private schools our new school represents one of the first 'new-build' integrated schools in New Zealand'.
As the progress photographs indicate construction of Stage 1 of the three stage school development, which will eventually accommodate 600 Year 1-10 students, is now well underway. Mark adds, 'a key element of the school's 'special character' is reflected in the design of the teaching spaces which will embrace the latest in modern, flexible, home-base/open learning environments'.
Further background to the project is outlined in the 'Projects' section of this website (click here).
