New Zealand Schools: Public Private Partnership (PPP3) SHIRLEY BOYS’ HIGH SCHOOL AVONSIDE GIRLS’ HIGH SCHOOL Drawing Title: EXTERNAL PERSPECTIVE - ENTRY VIEW NOTE: PLANS TAKE PRECEDENCE OVER OTHER DRAWINGS NOTE: COLOURS ARE INDICATIVE Project No.: Scale: Date: 15814 NTS 2016-11-09 SBAG 1403 NOR’WEST NEWS Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday April 17 2018 21 School open DayS Ultimate campus taking shape at QEII Park Sue and John. advertising feature Construction of the new state-of-the-art campus for Avonside Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High Schools is progressing rapidly with opening on track for next year. The new campus will feature a Performing Arts Centre with a 750-seat theatre and a 200-seat theatre, a hockey turf, four sports fields, three indoor gymnasiums, a café, and a large library and learning centre. Both Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume and Shirley Boys’ High School Headmaster John Laurenson are excited by the progress. “There are now more than 100 workers on site – that will peak to more than 300 in coming months. The steel framing is up and the concrete slabs are down and we can see now just how big this campus will be – it’s simply wonderful,” says John Laurenson. “You can finally see all that we have been talking about and dreaming about taking shape. We will be onsite with our students, staff and community making the most of all of the fantastic new facilities before we know it.” The campus is due to open in Term Two of 2019. It will be the first time in New Zealand’s history that two single sex schools will be co-located. John Laurenson says the co-location will enable the schools to offer students more. “Because we’re building together, we’ve been able to build bigger and better facilities.” Sue Hume says the co-location will also enable better educational opportunities. “We’ll collaborate on teaching some senior subjects, so we can offer students wider choice and there’s also the opportunity to work together on co-curricular opportunities – such as productions, sports competitions and the like.” Both principals are keen to point out that the co-location is not a merger. “We’ll still be Shirley and they’ll still be Avonside. We’ll work together, but both schools will retain their own culture, identity, staff and uniform. This is not a co-ed school,” says John Laurenson. “Research shows that single sex education benefits both boys and girls,” says Sue Hume. “Boys perform better academically and girls participate more. This new campus, has been designed so that students will still spend most of their time in a single sex environment.” Both Sue and John say the campus will be an asset the east of Christchurch will be proud of. “We’ll be right alongside the new QE2 Sport and Recreation Centre, the School of Gymnastics and have a satellite unit for Ferndale School onsite. It’s going to be a great place to learn.” AVONSIDE GIRLS’ HIGH SCHOOL OPEN EVENING Thursday 24 May 2018 from 5.00pm – 7.00pm The evening begins in the gymnasium at 5.00pm, with an address from the Principal Mrs Sue Hume, and student representatives. A tour of the school follows, with the opportunity to talk to teachers and students. We look forward to welcoming all prospective students and families for 2019. www.avonside.school.nz PH: 03 389 7199
