Ma¯ ori schools plan

The New Zealand Herald - - News -

Ma¯ ori lead­ers are pro­mot­ing two sep­a­rate ini­tia­tives to re­open board­ing schools for Ma¯ ori boys in the up­per North Is­land. A group of old boys from the former St Stephen’s School at Bom­bay have opened a web­site for reg­is­tra­tions for a new Ma¯ ori boys’ school which they plan to open in 2020. The move comes two weeks after med­i­cal en­tre­pre­neur Dr Lance O’Sul­li­van gath­ered 20 boys from North­land schools to be the first stu­dents in a Hato Petera Lead­er­ship Academy which he hopes to open on the North­cote site of Hato Petera Col­lege, which closed in Au­gust.
