Christchurch ICT Cluster logo

In November 1998 I was part of the team of people from Fendalton School and MagnumMac who designed a proposal to become one of the Ministry of Education's National ICT Strategy Lead Schools. There were 23 original lead schools and Fendalton was one of these. We formed the Christchurch ICT Cluster, which comprised of four schools: Richmond School, Ashley School, Roydvale School. They were lead by Fendalton School.
