Selwyn MP Amy Adams is delighted with the Government’s announcement that the town of Lincoln is to gain another primary school.

Set to open in 2019, Lincoln South Primary School will be a full primary school (Years 1-8.) Stage one of the $14 million project will cater for 450 students, with the roll due to grow to 700.

“Selwyn is a very attractive area for young families,” Ms Adams says. “As the population grows, it’s important that our community’s schools have the capacity they need to accommodate roll growth.

“This investment will help ease the pressure on Lincoln Primary School and will mean our education infrastructure is keeping up with the significant growth of our region.

“Like all the new schools and redevelopments this Government has invested in, Lincoln South Primary will have state-of-the-art, modern and comfortable buildings to ensure local kids and their teachers can work in the best possible learning environment.

“This investment is wonderful news for Selwyn and comes as part of the Government’s $1.37 billion Greater Christchurch Education Renewal Programme.”
