i was a little shocked to see that this school is rotting away while apparently the Ministry saying that the school building is fine ... sorry not sure where to put this

 

i doubt it's the only school that's rotting away!

I saw that, it's not good enough in 2020 regardless of the location of the school. This should have been addressed way ahead of giving millions to a private school, who shouldn't have gotten anything.

I think if you dig a little deeper you will find it was underfunded for many years, perhaps 9 years or more (hint) and has more recently had several $100k provided for these much needed upgrades.

It should have been obvious to the OP that this was posted in the wrong forum.

 

Even the first reply is politically charged - what else did you expect?

WHOA i don't see it (rotting schools) as political ... it was either here or health without an "education" subforum

Maybe you should take notice of / read the news occasionally.
Everything can be political - if you want it to be.  The school has apparently been rotting for years, but it's only newsworthy just before an election, then mainly as a "whataboutism" style attack on something a politician did.

IMO much more interesting than the fact that school is rotting (but being fixed - slowly) is that there's not even one pakeha pupil enrolled at the school.

The headline alone - ref PM and Neve - makes it political.

Yep because:

 

 

 

 

There's one like it in Hamilton on 5th ave. Called a Maori immersion school.

OK gotcha.  So as stated they've got students from Columbia and Syria, but not one Pakeha.

Not really.  The students are predominantly Maori, this by design so the kids can learn Maori culture. The school naturally takes a few refugees.   

 

 

 

It's not a school for Pakeha.I'm surprised  there is even one white kid there.

So the PM couldn’t send Neve there even if she wanted to?

Are the two comments highlighted accidentally stupid, or are you trying to say something you should probably regret.

A couple of things. They should leave the PMs child out of it, the media shouldn’t be bringing her into political debates. That’s just low. 

 

Secondly, where was the maintenance? It’s a tin roof, they surely should have been able to maintain it on a low decile budget. Having got into this situation, something does need to be done urgently.
