New of­fices open for in­spec­tion

The Northland Age - - Local News -

The Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion in Kaitaia has moved into its new of­fices, on the corner of Com­merce St and Redan Rd, and on Fri­day it will open the doors to ev­ery­one who would like to see in­side.

The aim of the open day, from 10am to 3pm, was to con­nect with the lo­cal com­mu­nity by dis­play­ing the new build­ing’s pub­lic space, to tell them about what the min­istry does, and to cel­e­brate Far North tal­ent, a min­istry spokesper­son said.

There would be plenty to see and do, she added, with three stars from Far North’s Got Tal­ent per­form­ing through­out the day, along with Ti­hei Harawira, who would be freestyle rap­ping about ed­u­ca­tion, lead­er­ship, and pre­par­ing for life with ed­u­ca­tion, wha¯nau and com­mu­nity.

Moko sten­cils and bal­loon an­i­mals would be on of­fer, while Kaitaia Col­lege, Kaitaia Pri­mary, Nga Whatua and Kaitaia Abun­dant Life School would have fundrais­ing cake stalls. Siz­zled sausages would be served free, and Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion staff would be happy to talk about ca­reers in the min­istry. Vis­i­tors would also be wel­come to see the pub­lic space, with tea and cof­fee, that they would be free to use at any time.
