Two schools, one campus - new school development in QEII

Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley Boys’ High School have relocated to one campus at QEII Park at the start of May 2019. While operating independently, it's the first time in New Zealand two single-sex schools have occupied the same site.
A great new educational chapter for the Eastside!

Christchurch Hot Pools

A resource consent application for the Hot Pools in New Brighton has been lodged with the council and ECan and the concept plans for the New Brighton hotwater pool facility look great!  A 12 month build time is expected following the granting of consents, so fingers crossed for a positive outcome!

New Brighton Pier Repairs

 

Repairs to the Pier started in February 2017 and the work was completed so the Pier could reopen fully for Queens' Birthday weekend 2018.

 

New Brighton Library reopened its doors after six months of earthquake repairs.
