A double classroom block taken from Queenstown Primary School
for ''retrofitting'' before its use at Remarkables Primary
School is barely recognisable while builders work to have it
ready before term one next year.
The Otago Daily Times earlier reported the relocatable
classroom was to manage a roll peak at the Frankton School.
The classrooms were moved across town to land beside
Queenstown Airport and the Ministry of Education has applied
for consent to place them at Remarkables Primary School when
the work is done.
The classrooms are being equipped with a new raised roof,
silencer insulation in the walls and new windows.
The consent application said the building was to be
compatible with existing buildings at the school and would
''also enhance the functioning and efficiency of the school's
''Classroom blocks are an essential and anticipated activity
at primary school and this proposal fulfils an immediate
demand for additional classroom space at Remarkables Primary
School,'' the application said.
