You will be helping Christchurch heal and you will be restoring the fabric of our community, our history, and your own. 

Main Block

Thanks to the generosity of our community of alumni, parents and friends, Main Block has been demolished and rebuilt.

At first glance, the new building looks no different to the old. But it is safer, warmer and more spacious.

The newly established Maidment House was opened in 2016 and accommodates 15 students. 

The new Dining Hall can seat 200. The kitchen has been expanded and modernised. Artwork from the Alex Baird Collection of Contemporary Art is now rehung in the Dining Hall.


Our beloved chapel has not been used since February 2011; work cannot begin on its restoration without further fundraising.  

The board is now talking with potential benefactors who will help us restore this wonderful, serene space.

A place of quiet, this beautiful building is at the centre of our community, as well as holding an important place in New Zealand's architectural history.

Designed by Sir Miles Warren and built in 1967, our chapel is described by Warren and Mahoney as "one of the most memorable spaces the practice has produced, a seemingly effortless display of scale, materials and treatment of light, all achieved within a unique and dramatic formal composition."
