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.
