to support NZ's four Māori boarding schools
The three Maori boarding schools in Hawke's Bay will get the lion's share of a $20 million government investment, to enable them to address significant declining property issues and maintain their operations.
Ikaroa-Rāwhiti MP Meka Whaitiri said the investment, announced on Friday, would help grow New Zealand's future leaders.
"This government believes in the unique role Māori boarding schools play in helping to shape and develop rangatahi," the Labour Party MP said.
"The rangatahi who attend these schools live and breathe tikanga, reo and develop a sense of whanaungatanga that can only be achieved inside these institutions."
