The highly regarded Maori educationalist, Keri Kaa, has agreed to be the independent facilitator for a series of consultation hui to gauge people’s views on the future of Queen Victoria School, The St, Stephen’s and Queen Victoria Schools’ Trust Board Chairperson Rangi Pouwhare confirmed today.

The Minister of Education, the Hon Trevor Mallard, has agreed to begin a consultation process with the Trust Board to determine what future the school should have. The consultation is being jointly carried out by the Trust Board and the Ministry of Education.

A series of consultation hui for parents, pupils, staff, school trustees and other interested parties will be held over 10 days, starting this Sunday.

The St Stephen’s and Queen Victoria Schools’ Trust Board, the owner of the school, has again reassured interested parties that no final decision on the future of Queen Victoria School will be made before the consultation process is completed.

“We are looking forward to meeting the people with an interest in the school to hear their views on the best way to improve education for young Maori women.” said Ms Pouwhare.
