New School Announcement

We have just learned that the process for the relocation of Wakatipu High School to the new site at Remarkables Park has been announced by the Minister of Education today (see link below). The proposed opening date is January 2018.


This is an exciting announcement for the Wakatipu, and it is positive to have more certainty regarding the date. 2018 however means that only current Year 9 students will attend the new school, and so our focus remains firmly on delivering a great all-round education to our current students at our current site.


While we will learn more about the PPP (public private partnership) model, it relates to the construction and maintenance of the school – the delivery of education remains the responsibility of the board of trustees and principal.


The prospect of a state of the art modern learning environment in the Wakatipu opens the door to many exciting opportunities for the school to continue to grow in its important role in the local community.
