Small is good Minister


Education Minister Anne Tolley (right) admits the Frankton site earmarked for the new Remarkables school “has its problems”.

But Tolley, in Queens­town on Tuesday to meet the school’s establishment board, remains confident the new Year 1-8 primary will be a success when completed next year.

The small Lake Avenue site restricts the size of the primary – and to accommodate future growth in the Wakatipu, another new school is required between Frankton and Arrowtown, she says.

Meanwhile, everything’s on track for construction of Remarkables school – due to start on April 21.

Yesterday morning Tolley signed the contract for Naylor Love to start building.
