Rob Naysmith —

As you will be aware Knights Stream School opens at the beginning of next year. This has implications on our current zone as Longhurst is proposed to be removed from our home zone. There are a few other minor changes which are shown on the maps provided and the zone boundary is outlined in writing. Please follow the link to our website with the information and maps provided by the Ministry of Education on the proposed changes, and read the Frequently Asked Questions below. If you have any questions or feedback on the proposed changes please email principal@halswell.school.nz The closing date for consultation feedback is Friday 23rd November. All feedback will be discussed and considered at the Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday 27th November.  All the information contained in the link can also be viewed in RTLB Office window which is opposite the school office as you walk past the coffee shop.

Kind Regards
