The value of major school building projects announced in the past three months is approaching $300 million, with the announcement today of a $6 million scheme for a Wellington primary school.

The money would be spent on replacing the main teaching block at Khandallah School, the government said.

Projects announced since October include Western Springs College in Auckland, Wellington East Girls' College, and Marlborough Boys' College and Marlborough Girls' College in Blenheim.
