List of schools in Christchurch

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

There are 145 schools in Christchurch, New Zealand's second most-populous city, serving approximately 59,000 primary and secondary school students.[1] Most schools are large urban schools based in the city of Christchurch itself, including some of the largest in the country, with several small rural primary schools and a combined primary/secondary school on Banks Peninsula.

In New Zealand schools, students begin formal education in Year 1 at the age of five.[2] Year 13 is the final year of formal education. The thirteen years of formal education are generally broken up into primary education (Years 1 to 8) and secondary education (Years 9 to 13). Generally, student complete Years 1 to 6 at a primary school and Years 9 to 13 at a secondary school. Years 7 and 8 may be taken at a primary school, secondary school, or a separate intermediate school. There are also composite schools which cover both primary and secondary education.

State schools are those fully funded by the government and at which no fees for tuition of domestic students (i.e. New Zealand citizens and permanent residents, and Australian citizens) can be charged, although a donation is commonly requested.[3] A state integrated school is a former private school with a special character based on a religious or philosophical belief that has been integrated into the state system. Private schools charge fees to its students for tuition, as do state and state integrated schools for tuition of international students.[4] In Christchurch, approximately 77 percent of students attend state schools, 15.5 percent attend state integrated schools, and 7.5 percent attend private schools.[1]

The roll of each school changes frequently as students start school for the first time, move between schools, and graduate or drop out. The rolls given here are those provided by the Ministry of Education, and are based on figures from March 2019.[5] The Ministry of Education institution number links to Te Kete Ipurangi page for each school.

State-integrated schools[edit]

State-integrated schools are former private schools with a special character based on a religious or philosophical belief that has been integrated into the state system under the Private Schools Conditional Integration Act 1975. They were established in the early 1970s as a response to the near-collapse of the country's then private Catholic school system, which had run into financial difficulties. The majority of state-integrated schools in Christchurch (and New Zealand) continue to be Catholic schools.

State integrated schools charge "attendance dues" to cover the building and maintenance of school buildings, which are not owned by the government, but otherwise they like state schools cannot charge fees for tuition of domestic students but may request a donation.

2013 state school network review[edit]

During 2013, Education Minister Hekia Parata announced a multitude of proposed changes to the state school network in Christchurch. In addition, Parata announced changes to some schools in the Selwyn and Waimakariri Districts.[35][36]

In January 2014, six schools closed, four schools merged into two, and three schools added years in the first phase of changes. A third merger between Lyttelton Main School and Lyttelton West School took effective on 5 May 2014. The minister also confirmed and gazetted that Phillipstown School and Woolston School would merge on the Woolston site in January 2014.[37] However, in June 2013, Phillipstown School asked the High Court for a judicial review, claiming Parata had acted illegally and made errors in her decision to close and merge the school. The review was accepted by the court,[38] and the hearing began on 30 September 2013. On 10 October 2013, the High Court ruled in favour of Phillipstown School and overruled the Minister's decision.[39] However, the merger went ahead, and on 2 February 2015, Te Waka Unua opened as the merged school on the site of the former Woolston School.[11]

Footnotes[edit]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Years 1 to 8 are currently based at Halswell Residential College. Years 9 to 13 are currently based at the University of Canterbury's Dovedale campus. Both of these sites are temporary until a new permanent site in the central city is found.
  2. ^ Marian College is currently based in the spare capacity at Catholic Cathedral College, after damage and liquefaction from the 2011 Christchurch earthquake deemed the existing site in Shirley unusable until at least 2014.
  3. ^ Teen Parent Unit rolls are returned with their host school. In the case of Kimihia Parent's College, the host school is Linwood College.
