after multiple Māori teachers leave, calls for principal and board to go
Now students and the community are upset there hasn't been enough communication and are calling for the Board of Trustees and the principal to go.
There's been an outcry of support from around 100 students and community members for their Māori teachers.
After one teacher from Papakura High School's Māori unit was let go, three others including Harono Teiringa resigned in protest.
"I resigned to stand in solidarity with my colleagues and I felt culturally unsafe with what was happening."
Accusations of racism and bullying hang over the school's management team.
Former board member and parent Kim Hassan says it's been 12 weeks since the first teacher - or kaiako - was let go, and the matter still hasn't been resolved.
