Ngati Whakaue / Rotorua Partnership School

Ngati Whakaue / Rotorua Partnership School

“We are excited to announce that we have confirmed the venue for Te Rangihakahaka Centre for Science and Technology” said Roana Bennett, General Manager of Te Taumata o Ngati Whakaue Iho-Ake Trust.

“The new school will be located on Dinsdale Road, off Lake Road, minutes from the Rotorua CBD” she said.

“The two-story building is very well constructed and is ideal for the learning spaces we want to create for our tamariki and whanau” she said.

“The site name is Turipuku – a name that has a close association with Ngati Whakaue and is highly appropriate for our school site” said Ms Bennett.

“The ample park-like grounds will provide plenty of outdoor discovery areas for tamariki” she said.

“We are tracking well for our opening date of 30 January 2018 with huge interest being shown by families with year 1 to 10 students. We have over 100 registrations of interest, not just from Rotorua, but from other parts of New Zealand and even Australia” she said.
