Linwood College Rebuild Fund

$13,217 of $750,000 goal
Given by 73 generous donors in around 4 months

Linwood College is being rebuilt, offering an exciting opportunity to create a well-equipped school as a key community asset for East Chch.


Linwood College is being rebuilt, offering a once-in-a-generation opportunity to lift the educational experience of the approximate 800 pupils from our community who attend the school.

The school’s initial fitout budget will not stretch to all the equipment and services identified below as needed.

Examples of what your money will help fund:

* Specialised equipment for technology, catering and creative courses.

* The fit out for the performance centre -- lighting, sound, seating etc.

* Exercise facilities for seniors and playgrounds for year 7 and 8.

* Furniture and equipment for our uniquely valuable Teen Parent Unit.

* Trees, shrubs and landscaping to create a welcoming environment.

* Expansion of pastoral care initiatives.

* Whakairo (carvings) for the whare (meeting house)

About us

The Linwood College Foundation has been set up to raise money from the business and general community surrounding the college, recognising that the alumni of the college, generally speaking, does not have the wealth of other educational institutions.

Use of funds

The money will be used to top up less-than-adequate Government funding for the fit out of the school in areas of specialised education, performance art, recreational and cultural facilities and the general landscaping.
