The development of a facility for students with Special Needs.
After many years of negotiation the school development plan for the upgrading of the buildings was accepted. This plan because of its size and complexity will probably take 5-10 years to complete will see the whole school virtually re-built. The first stage was:-
a. refurbishment of S block with a 6th form common room
b. a new two classroom Maori Studies block
c. a new senior laboratory in A block
d. re-paint and re-roof 'S' and 'A' extensions
e. a new fence around the swimming pool
