Redevelopment underway

Long Bay College is undertaking several building projects to upgrade our facilities this year. Work on site begins from May 23, 2019 and will continue intermittently until April 2020. The first project is the full redevelopment of one of our original blocks, M Block.  It will be refurbished into 16 bright and airy classrooms.
Classes previously held in M block have been transferred to other classrooms around the College and into two relocatable buildings.
The building contractors and the College are aware of the impact the building works may have on neighbouring properties, regarding noise levels and road congestion. Every effort has been made to minimise disturbances.
We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we go about creating an even better school for our current and future students.

Long Bay Regional Park Planting Day – May 19

Sunday, May 19, 2019, 10am-1pm
Members of the Long Bay College Ecolution group would like to invite you, your family and your friends along to the regional park planting day. Meet at Long Bay Regional Park, Beach Road, Long Bay, Auckland. Once you get to the park, follow the signs to the meeting area. Contact Ms Greta Anderson for further details: ganderson@lbc.school.nz
Why get involved? Because as trees grow, they help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Come and help plant some more!
