Plans are under way for a major redevelopment at Te Puke High School, with the launch of a new building project designed to further help students into the 21st century.
The redevelopment plans were launched at the school last week.
Principal Alan Liddle said that over the past year representatives from Te Puke High School had worked with the Ministry of Education and the construction consortium on plans for the redevelopment of the school campus.
"One of the major challenges has been the nature of the ground at the upper end of the school adjacent to Cameron Road, which has restricted the height of buildings in this area to being single-storey only. The redevelopment plans include a contemporary library and student centre, innovative technology block, modern science laboratories and flexible learning environments for our 21st century learners."
Redevelopment will occur over four stages, with the final stage being completed at the beginning of 2014.
