Porirua’s new strategies get launch day

Porirua City Council

Porirua’s Pacific and Māori strategies will be officially launched on Friday 15 December.

The Porirua City Māori Strategy Maungaroa 2050 will be launched with a morning tea at 8am held at Pātaka Art + Museum, while that evening, at Te Akapuanga Cook Islands Hall in Cannons Creek, there will be a night market to celebrate Ola Kamataga – Beginning of Life 2024-27.

The city’s Pacific strategy will be welcomed with food, entertainment, crafts and people in an evening that will undoubtedly have a festive feel.

Ola Kamataga – Beginning of Life 2024-27 and Maungaroa 2050 are milestone moments to strengthen the partnerships between Council and Porirua’s Māori and Pacific communities – who make up about 45 per cent of the city’s population.

What would The School of Life teach?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The National Party introduced their policy called 'teaching the basics brilliantly' last year regarding changing school curriculums. They are referring to reading, writing and maths.

However, some people believe school should actually be more practical, teaching kids to change tyres and balance their finances. Thinking about all the skills that have benefited you over the years, tell us what would be taught at your School of Life?
