BUILDING A DREAM: Huanui College principal Anna Cronshaw at the site of the new private school in Glenbervie.

Building has started, a principal has been appointed and in eight months students will pour through the gates of Whangarei’s newest school.

Only weeks ago the construction of Huanui College began on a five-lot subdivision in Glenbervie.

It is set to open next February.

Founder Evan Hamlet says the college will focus on traditional values and discipline, with teachers and support staff expected to lead by example.

The private co-educational school will be seen as an alternative to top Auckland private schools like King’s College and St Cuthbert’s but it will not be a school solely for Whangarei’s more affluent.

Fees are expected to be $10,000 a year and there will be scholarships available. Some top private schools charge up to $30,000 a year.

Huanui College will be the first school in Northland to offer University of Cambridge International Examinations to all students, says Mr Hamlet.

[Anna Cronshaw] moved back to Whangarei 18 months ago and worked fulltime at Ngunguru School

He says the highly sought-after qualifications will be a chance for students to push themselves and achieve their personal best.

A lot of parents are already showing interest in the school and student applications will be accepted in a few weeks.
