The school’s buildings have reached the end of their life-span, and it has been consulting with the community on how it would like the school to look and feel after the rebuild. Principal Richard Edmundson said the school’s “past difficulties” had to be acknowledged so it could move forward. “We just want our natural community to feel confident that Linwood College is a viable choice for their kids.” A limited statutory manager was asked to step into the school in 2014 to resolve issues between staff and management. Former principal Margaret Paiti resigned in June 2015 after five years in the role. Mr Edmundson, who was a teacher at the school from 1990-2001, became principal at the start of the year, ending the Ministry of Education intervention. In March, a year 13 student said she had been bullied at school, and on one occasion was punched by another student as she walked home. Mr Edmundson said the main message from consultation was that parents wanted their children to feel connected with the school, and emotionally and physically safe. The community also wanted their children to get an education that set them up for their next step, he said. “There was clear community awareness that there have been past difficulties at Linwood College. And 100 per cent, people are glad that this consultation is occurring and that the school is listening carefully to the wishes and aspirations of the community.” CIRCUS ACT: Amy Gardiner, 11, of Cracroft, hangs upside down on the aerial hoop. She was one of about 15 children who went along to the Kid Circus last Tuesday. The event involved children having fun while learning circus tricks and acrobatics. The circus is run by Mim and Danny Syme who created Circotica, a circus theatre company, in 2013. •More photos, page 10.
