This is the journey to bring Avonside Girls and Shirley Boys High Schools together in one outstanding facility in Christchurch.
The campus is vast from above, and what sits inside is even more eye catching.
For the first time, two distinct single sex high schools operate side by side,
yet they both retain their own DNA and identity.
Delivered as a public private partnership, the Ministry of Education’s vision for ‘One Campus, Two Schools’ has proved exceptional.
Dynamic and flexible, this 20,000 square metre campus flows and blends seamlessly to provide purpose built shared spaces and
distinct learning areas for each school.
Highlights include stunning performing art theatres, a three court gymnasium with bouldering wall, technology spaces, a dance studio, cultural centre, multiple courtyards and all weather sports surfaces.
Getting this vast project across the finish line came from some strong thinking. The Building Intelligence Group was proud to act as the Ministry of Education’s representative to be the safe pair of hands that ticked every box for operational readiness.
Two Schools – One Campus is set to take Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley Boys’ High School into the future.
