Opening of New Science Block Extension

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.
