Christchurch South Intermediate is a school catering for students in Years 7 and 8 in Christchurch, New Zealand. Established in 1939, it is the second oldest Intermediate School in the South Island and the third oldest in New Zealand. The school is located between the suburbs of Addington and Cashmere on what was the site of an old dairy farm and racing stables. It replaced the intermediate department of the Christchurch West High School in the 1930s.[4] In 2012 work was completed replacing the old classrooms, which were built in 1939. These have been replaced with 4 'pods' consisting of 4 modern classrooms. [5]
