Cash Injection For New School Classrooms

A capital injection of $5.5 million will be invested into five Hawke’s Bay schools to help solve current and future overcrowding problems. Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Ngāti Kahungunu o Te Wairoa, Mahora School, Eskdale School, Frimley Primary School and Gisborne’s Kaiti School have been promised a combined 10 new classrooms by the Ministry of Education. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Education Minister Chris Hipkins announced the funding on Wednesday as part of a $20m spend on 39 new roll growth teaching spaces to be built at schools across the Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Hawke’s Bay. “This Government is taking a responsible approach to ensure funding is available in areas where student numbers are growing,” Hipkins said.
