For centre owner Jo O Brien it is a time to celebrate after the dark cloud that had threatened closure of the centre due to the premises failing to meet the Ministry of Education s requirements in 2009. The new centre at Haggitt Street is licensed to offer quality care for babies and pre-schoolers. It was almost a case of throwing things over the fence from their previous location at Pirinoa Street. Jo and her staff are delighted with the new premises and welcome prospec- tive families to come and see the stepping stone to the future they provide for children. Jo O Brien and her staff ensure children have a relaxed, friendly supportive environ- ment. The Open Day is from 10am Saturday January 28 at 2A Haggitt Street. Rising enrolment may lead to 'home zone' By BOBBIE NICHOLLS Manchester Street School s three relocated classrooms have been on site for a year. Reno- vation work has been carried out to have two of the three ready to use as soon as was practical under Ministry of Education restraints. But it will be the second term this year before the third room is expected to be ready to use. Principal Rex Wheeler said it was disappointing the buildings had not been able to be put into use earlier, as with a roll of more than 400, the school needs the extra space. Board of Trustees (BOT) chairman Greg Oke said the first term will be busy with landscaping, veranda construction, renovation and fitting out. Other internal work in different areas of the school will also be carried out to make best use of the available space. The removal of the old, unused boiler will make way for a much needed resource room. As the school roll has risen during the past few years, talk has been of limiting the roll to those who live within a home zone . Mr Oke said the BOT is continuing to moni- tor the Ministry of Education s thoughts of a possible home zone and enrolment scheme if the roll increases beyond the capacity to house students. The board has had ongoing consultation and dialogue with stakeholders and the Ministry this year. This will ensure all factors are weighed up before any potential scheme is put in place by the Ministry.
