Kura expands to meet roll growth
Te Wharekura o Te Rau Aroha near Matamata is to get four new classrooms in a $1.6 million makeover.
Associate Education Minister Nikki Kaye says the school has experienced consistent roll growth in response to increased demand for Maori medium education.
It was established in 2009 through the redevelopment of Narua Primary School, incorporating a mix of existing and new buildings.
She says population growth is leading to roll increases in many schools and kura, prompting the Government to include $882.5 million for school property in the 2016 Budget.
