History is being made in Golden Sands Papamoa East, the new Catholic School has been approved by the Minister of Education, and tenders will soon be called for the construction and earthworks for the new school.
An Establishment Board has been getting to grips with the task ahead and is working with the Schools Office of the Hamilton Diocese and the Ministry of Education. An appointment of the establishment principal is anticipated in late May or early June 2020.
Despite Covid-19 delays, the school is expected to be open early February 2021 for the initial intake of 100 pupils. This is an exciting development for the parish as we will have two schools to support and minister to.
