Principal looking forward to development of new school premises
Grafton Downs is excited to announce plans for a new school have been confirmed at Paerata Rise.
Paerata School, with a roll count of 140, will be moving to the new site in 2021. The school roll will increase to up to 750 students from year 1-8. With up to 4500 new houses in the area, the school will be in hot demand.
Principal Luke Thompson is thrilled to be moving to the site and told Stuff recently that he was glad to let parents know of the “shift”.
