RO­TORUA NA­TIONAL MP TODD MCCLAY

Rotorua Review - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

We’re open­ing two news schools in Ro­torua next year to meet pop­u­la­tion growth and of­fer par­ents more choice.

Our hard work­ing teach­ers do a great job - record num­bers of lo­cal stu­dents are suc­ceed­ing in NCEA.

Na­tional is fo­cused on a mod­ern teach­ing en­vi­ron­ment and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment for our teach­ers lead­ing to bet­ter out­comes for stu­dents.

We’re sup­port­ing skills and lan­guage with a new $379m pro­gramme. Ro­torua stu­dents will have the skills they need to do well in a mod­ern work­force. The Ma¯ori Party wants main­stream class­rooms to speak the lan­guage of our tu¯puna; to in­clude Ma¯ori ways of know­ing in the cur­ricu­lum, and to hold our tu¯puna up as role mod­els of aca­demic ex­cel­lence.

We agree with Ma¯ori par­ents who want their chil­dren to learn in schools that teach them that their an­ces­tors were great philoso­phers, sci­en­tists, math­e­ma­ti­cians, en­trepreneurs and re­searchers.

The Ma¯ori Party wants all tamariki to stand tall in the knowl­edge that they have a rich and dis­tinct her­itage of schol­arly en­deav­ours.
