Kauri Flats

School Build

See the progress being made on site.

Due to politics of many and very poor geo tech of the land the school programme was delayed by 6 months. Fortunately, we know the school will not sink now and will not be rushed to be built, so we get an outstanding building.

We are on track for full opening by September 2017 and two thirds of the school open late July 2017.
