Christchurch schools face an uncertain future of closures or mergers as the region tries to cope with the 9300 places available in its schools.

Any changes to Canterbury's schools will have far reaching impacts on local communities, families, and our young people, so we want to hear your views on the future.

What's great about your school and why should it stay the same? Send us a photo of your school so we can see how fantastic it is.

How will the proposed changes impact on your family and community? What do you think of the plans for the future of education in Christchurch? How would you do things differently?
