Christchurch school children move into temporary accommodation again

Christchurch school children at five Catholic schools will have to move into temporary accommodation again because repair work needs to be done.

Catholic Education Office manager Mike Nolan said classrooms at St Peter’s, Christ the King, Our Lady of Assumption, St Bernadette’s and St Mary’s schools will have to be vacated for between 10 and 12 weeks while the repairs were done.

In February they were moved into marquees for a couple of weeks while temporary  work was carried out to get the buildings to 67 per cent of the building code.

This time the diocese has obtained four portable buildings, which will be moved on to school sites to house pupils and staff while the permanent repairs were being done.
