Rowan Nicks block reopens as new Mathematics Faculty
On Thursday the 30th May we unveiled the latest upgrade to our building improvements, the Rowan Nicks block where the Mathematics Faculty will be located. The newly renovated area includes 10 totally refurbished heated classrooms, staff office area, kitchen room, beautifully finished carpeted hallways with glass window dividers, while making great use of the natural light, established tropical gardens with some final landscaping getting under way soon to finish the communal courtyard area off. Local Kaumatua Neil Barnett conducted the traditional maori blessing with Principal Mary Nixon leading a large group of followers through the building and around the premises.
This week students attended their first classroom sessions onsite and with the final two classrooms being finished in the coming weeks, the Mathematics Faculty will soon be the envy of all the other departments come mid-winter. See photo's below of the finished rooms, blessing ceremony and classes underway.
A big thank-you to Woodview Construction for the completion of this fantastic new learning environment!
