Former property lawyer Suzy Petersen is chairwoman of the establishment board while Busy Bumbles owner Rebecca Scott is deputy. Ladbrooks Primary School principal Penny O’Brien, Lincoln University senior lecturer Amanda Black, Halswell Primary School Louise Ponce also make up the board. The school, currently known as Lincoln South Primary, will be built in two stages.

While a site is yet to be signed off, it will be situated on the south side of the Lincoln township. It will be a full primary school for year 1 to 8 pupils.

She was working with the district council to determine whether the district council or Black Door would enforce restrictions. Make us your homepage!
