Hukarere Hostel refresh just a start says Māori boarding school
Hukarere Girls’ College tumuaki Shona West has welcomed a $20 million Māori Boarding Fund to upgrade the hostels of New Zealand’s four Māori boarding schools.
The fund was announced last week by Ikaroa Rāwhiti MP Meka Whaitiri during a visit to the Hawke’s Bay college with fellow minister Kelvin Davis.
Ms West says it’s a step towards to a much needed rebuild of the entire school.
Board of trustee’s chair Heke Huata says the Anglican boarding school is able to provide a quality education despite the state of its buildings.
