Announcement : 

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Whānau,   The Ministry of Education (MoE) is proposing the establishment of a new Year 1-8 co-educational primary school in Massey Redhills, Auckland.   A preferred site for the proposed Massey Redhills Primary School has been identified within the live zoned Redhills precinct area west of Fred Taylor Drive.  To cater for school aged population growth in the short term, the proposed new school will be temporarily located at 13 – 15 Trig Road, Whenuapai.  The proposed school would be known as Massey Redhills Primary School during its establishment.  The foundation learners and staff of the school would start at the Trig Road site and move to the permanent school site in Massey Redhills when it is built and ready for occupation.     As part of the proposal, the MoE is required to consult with the Board of any state school whose roll might be affected if the school was established.   If you have any feedback on this proposal, please email me at pa@whenuapai.school.nz by Friday, 15 October 2021. Your responses will be collated and form part of our feedback provided to the MoE (please note – the deadline stated in the attached letter has now been extended).   Subject to the Minister establishing the proposed new school, the MoE are also seeking nominations for the Establishment Board of the new school. Information about the role of the Establishment Board, a nomination form and the Eligibility Attestation form are attached for anyone who is interested.    Massey – Redhills – Letter consult.docx EBOT Massey – Redhills – Info pack candidates EBOTs.docx   Ngā mihi nui,   Jo Wright Principal’s PA
