Rapid growth around Rototuna Junior and Senior High Schools has earned them a $16 million funding boost from the Government.
It will allow the schools to cater for another 500 students.

Senior high principal Natasha Hemara said the junior school was "bursting at the seams" and the senior school would be getting close to its limits in 2020.
It was always planned to take an extra 500 students at the schools, she said, but it was helpful that the Government was funding it.
