Westlake Boys' water woes fixed
More than $4 million has been spent fixing water-damaged buildings at Westlake Boys High School.
The Ministry of Education says it is one of the largest weather-tightness repair projects undertaken at an Auckland school.
It took almost two years to complete the work, which included a $3m upgrade and extension of the school's science facilities.
The 10 classrooms in the English block also got a $1.2m makeover.
The work was part of the ministry's building improvement programme which was introduced in 2009 to help schools facing weather-tightness problems.
About 1600 buildings at 780 schools all over New Zealand have been repaired or rebuilt as part of the programme.
