Researcher comments/remarks
In September 2013, this site was purchased by the Ministry of Education. The section will add 400 square metres to the site of the new primary school which is to be built in Lyttelton in 2014-15. The two existing schools, Lyttelton Main and Lyttelton West schools, will be officially merged as part of the Ministry of Education’s post-earthquake review of schools in the greater Christchurch area. It is expected that the new school buildings will be ready for use in Term 3, 2015.
