New Kindergarten to be named ‘Wairakei’

The convenor of the Establishment Committee, Natasha Brokenshire, for the new Papamoa East kindergarten announced today that her committee had approved the name, Wairakei. This had come about after consultation with Nga Potiki. The new kindergarten is to be built on the corner of Wairakei Ave and Golden Sands Drive, Papamoa.

“The name reflects the importance of the Wairakei Stream as a significant cultural and environmental feature of our local area. Wairakei is also the name by which the original community to the south of the Wairakei Reserve is known”, said Ms Brokenshire.

Final details of the building plan are currently being worked on and documentation will be submitted to council in the coming weeks. It is intended that construction will begin in September with the kindergarten opening in Term 2, 2015.
