Just prior to the start of the school year, the opening of the new Science (A Block) extension was held. This is part of the school’s post-earthquake Stage 2 Christchurch School Rebuild (CSR) property programme. This exciting new two-storied extension includes seven new specialist Science laboratories, a new staff workroom, toilets and two large breakout spaces.
The extension was officially opened by two former Science teachers: Anne Mitchell and Murray Allison. They were both employed at Cashmere High School for 30 and 31 years respectively, and both held the following leadership roles at different times: HOD Biology, Head of School, and Deputy Principal. The extension block was officially blessed by one of the school’s parents and kaumatua, Henare Edwards. Former principal from 1981-91 (and previous Cashmere Science teacher and HOD) Mr John Murdoch was also in attendance at the opening function.
The school community is thrilled with this stunning new specialist facility.
