Mangawhai Beach School’s new building will be built in the style of a marae.
Mangawhai Beach School students expect to move into new classrooms in June.
The new school building – built in the style of a marae – is one of a series of projects designed to cope with the school’s rapidly expanding roll.
Once complete, temporary Portacoms currently located in the staff carpark, will be removed.
Also nearing completion is a new concrete bike track, which is just awaiting final markings before students are allowed to use it.
The track can be used for bicycles, skateboards and scooters.
A new turning bay for buses is complete, improving safety for the 400 plus students who travel to school by bus.
Other completed projects include new drainage, installation of water tanks and new decks.
Principal Aaron Kemp says the school will soon start fundraising for a new swimming pool.
