“Fantastic news”. That was the reaction today from the Churton Park Community Association to the announcement, by the Minister of Education, of a new school for the fast-growing suburb.
For several years now the local school has been under pressure with rising roll growth and limited land area for new classrooms. This announcement means that parents throughout the community can be assured of access to good quality local schooling in the future.
Churton Park now has a population approaching 5,000 and is one of the fastest growing suburbs of Wellington City.
