More rooms for schools LINCOLN HIGH School and Lincoln Primary School are about to gain some much needed new classrooms. Yesterday, Associate Education Minister Nikki Kaye announced funding for nine new classrooms for the primary school and six for the high school. The new classrooms are expected to be completed by early 2017. Lincoln High deputy principal Stephen Rout said the growing roll meant the classrooms were well timed. “Our school has grown really quickly, we’re at about 1700 students now, so we really had no spare space,” he said. Lincoln Primary School principal Viv Butcher said the school was delighted at the announcement. “It is reassuring to our parent community too that we will have brand new teaching spaces for the kids,” Mrs Butcher said. The school already has five modular buildings under construction to house the growing number of pupils. THe school is teaching some of its pupils in its library, hall and on the former Environment Canterbury premises on Edward St as a temporary measure while the classrooms are completed.
