The greatest school of all will do
all these things with students
drawn from all walks of life.''
Laurenson invites prospective
students and their parents to find
out about The Shirley Way -- the
school's philosophical beliefs, its
successes and its challenges -- at
an open night on Thursday, June

Thursday, May 23.
The sessions are informal and
have been designed for small

Exciting times ahead as
school enters new phase
Exciting times: Hornby High School is about to enter a rebuilding and
expansion programme to cater for increasing numbers of students moving
to the western suburbs.
Hornby High School is in line for
significant redevelopment. The
Ministry of Education has
announced that the whole campus
is due for a major rebuild or
renovation over the next few
years. It is also likely that the
school will expand to become a
year 7 to 13 school from the start
''This could mean that Hornby
High School could be starting
three new year groups in 2014,''
says deputy principal Jon Rogers.
The proposed changes in
education provision in the Hornby
area are being made to
accommodate an increasing
number of new students coming
to the western suburbs.
Hornby High School will hold an
open evening on Tuesday, July 2.
The evening has been timed to
give clearer information on the
planned rebuilding and expansion
programme, which is part of the
Ministry of Education's reforms for
''The Minister of Education will
make her final decision about
schooling in the Hornby area no
later than the end of May,'' Rogers
says. ''Regardless of her decision,
there will be big developments at
the school next year and we will
be able to share this information
with our community at the July
open evening. This is an exciting
time for students to be enrolling,
as the school evolves.''
To enable as many people as
possible to attend, Hornby High
School's open evening will be held
in two sessions; at 4.30pm and
7pm. For further information,
