Proposal Merge

All 16 buildings have earthquake damage and three require weathertightness repairs at a cost of $1.2 million, the Education Ministry says.

Bromley School profile:

Address: 33 Keighleys Rd, Bromley, Christchurch

Website: bromley.school.nz

School type: Contributing (Year 1-6), decile 2

Roll change (from 2008 to July 2012): 289 to 253

Building damage: All 16 buildings have earthquake damage from minor cracking to relevelling of rooms and buildings. Three require weathertightness repairs.

Cost: $1.2 million

Land status: Surrounding land is mostly technical category 2. Further geotechnical investigation will be required if further development is undertaken.

The ministry's plan: Merge with Linwood Avenue School, on Bromley's site.

Rationale for merger: ''The roll in the Linwood cluster for the three primary schools and Linwood Intermediate fell by almost 200 learners between July 2010 and July 2012. There is now an over-supply of primary places in the cluster.''

Read the ministry's rationale for change.

Principal: Scot Kinley

Scot Kinley said: ''I'm pretty aware that land, buildings and people are the driving factor behind this. Our land, buildings and people are not affected and our school is growing, but it's about the wider community.''
