Marian College moves in to Papanui

Marian College moves in to their Papanui site this week. Take care in the Northcote Road area as there will be more cyclists and pedestrians on the move, and changed traffic conditions, especially around Lydia Street once classes start on Thursday 23 November. There’ll be an official opening of the new site in February 2024. Here are a few ‘behind the scenes’ photos as the school prepares to open:
