Education Minister Hekia Parata officially opened Rolleston Christian School recently in an official ceremony. The school is located in the Selwyn District - one of fastest growing areas in New Zealand.
"Rolleston Christian School will relieve the pressure on existing schools in the urban area and will offer parents the option to send their children to a school that fits with their philosophical and religious beliefs," says Ms Parata.
"The modern learning environment that Rolleston Christian School offers will reflect the needs of 21st century students and contribute to the drive we're making to raise the educational success of Kiwi kids," says Ms Parata.
Signal Management Group was appointed by the school's Board of Proprietors, The Christian School's Trust, in 2013 to lead the project early planning and design stages through consenting, detailed design, procurement and construction. Mr Mark Larson, CEO of the Trust, said that Signal delivered on a impossible task after being handed 'a hospital pass' with an 'incredibly challenging delivery timeframe'. Signal's project manager Stuart Anderson led the project to a successful conclusion when it was completed in early February - which required shaving 5 weeks off the construction programme.
