The future is looking bright at Ashburton College with an investment of $50million announced for 64 new classrooms, a new library and new auditorium.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made the announcement in Ashburton on Thursday after a tour of school buildings and an informal chat with staff and students.
She said said the current college buildings were “left wanting” and were in poor condition.
There had been “a real need” for an upgrade at Ashburton College for a number of years.
“Your library looks likes an old Pizza Hut building,” she told college staff.
