As more families are choosing to make Auckland their home we are seeing a huge upsurge in enrolments at Auckland Central Schools.
We are lucky that our children have access to high achieving schools, like St Mary’s, and National are focused on continuing to invest in schools and technology so that our children get access to the best possible education. Since I was elected in 2008 we have delivered more than $10 million for upgrades and new classrooms for twelve Auckland Central schools.
Meanwhile, in August 2014 the Government announced plans to invest $350 million over four years to build new schools and classrooms around the rapidly growing Auckland region. As New Zealand continues growing strongly, the school network will come under pressure in different parts of the country as the population grows and this investment will help to meet those challenges.
