with plans for new wharekura
A new wharekura will be built in the lower North Island as part of the Government’s efforts to lift the number of Māori learners in Aotearoa.
Associate Minister of Education Kelvin Davis said on Tuesday the Māori immersion school would be built in Feilding in 2023 and cater for years 1-13.
The wharekura was part of the Government’s commitment to increase the number of Māori learners attending Māori medium and kura kaupapa Māori education to 30% by 2040.
