Thames (NZ): Thames High School's Wharenui

News in the Hauraki Herald (24 February 2017) that the Wharenui has been completed at Thames High School. The cost was $400,000 and the building will be blessed and officially opened 28 February 2017. Principal Dave Sim hopes that in future the building will be 'dressed' by future users - adding kowhaiwhai panels and carvings.

The building will be used for te reo Maori classes, and by cultural and community groups. The previous building has been removed, to allow for the development of the new indoor court complex.
