WESTERN SPRINGS COLLEGE
Nga Puna O Waiorea
 
In response to the WSC Board’s request for an update concerning the progress of the school redevelopment project, the Ministry of Education has advised as follows:

WSC REDEVELOPMENT and SCHOOL NETWORK UPGRADE PROJECT UPDATE

The Western Springs College redevelopment is a large complex proposal. Because of the importance and cost of the project, the decision must be made by Cabinet.  The business case has been completed and analysed by Ministry officials together with community feedback. The business case includes the Board’s preferred option (Streetscape option).

We intend to consult Treasury on the business case during September. The Ministry anticipates the business case will go to Ministers and Cabinet thereafter.

We will continue to work with the school, through the Combined Steering Group, as this process continues and will keep the community informed of progress.

In the meantime, the school’s broadband network will be upgraded; work is underway on this.
