Funding Received for New Climbing Wall and Gym Upgrade

posted 27 Sep 2018, 21:11 by OC Web
The College was thrilled to receive notification from the New Zealand Community Trust that our application for funding was successful and we have been granted $150,000 to go towards a new climbing wall in the gym.  This will be the first stage of an ongoing upgrade of the gym resulting in a high quality community facility.  We would like to thank NZCT for recognising the worth of this project.  We will be fine-tuning plans over the next few weeks and will start construction of the wall as soon as possible. 

I would also like to thank KCDC who have made a funding commitment to the gym upgrade of $50,000 per year for six years, beginning in 2020.  The Council contribution has been the culmination of six years of lobbying and I would like to acknowledge the support of the Ōtaki Community Board and members of School community for their commitment to getting the project underway.
