Hamilton Christian School moving towards integration

Jamie Neighbourly Lead from Chartwell

I was honoured to visit Hamilton Christian School yesterday to help make the announcement around them moving towards becoming an integrated school, which will cut parent fees and provide extra educational resources for the school.

Since my election to Parliament I have been a strong advocate of this proposal, speaking with Minister Hipkins on many occasions.

I am excited to see progress in this area, and thank the school leadership for the excellent work they have done and continue to do.

Hamilton Christian School has won government approval to negotiate to become an integrated state school.

The second highest was Waitemata (0.82), followed by Waikato (0.74). To read more, click here

Low Cost July Workshop Series

Dr. Heidi Douglass from Psychological Services and Yoga with Dr. Heidi Douglass

I am offering 5 workshops in Raglan this July. Please share with your friends & family by the sea. Why?
Because New Zealand has a significant Mental Health Crisis on its hands. There are long wait times for free services, we have one of the highest rates of teen suicides in the developed world and there is an unhealthy emphasis on the use of medications when less invasive talk therapy can provide excellent results for our most common mental health issues.
I am offering a low-cost workshop series based in Raglan to try and do my part to help alleviate suffering in my community.
Please share this post to help spread the word.
Each workshop sold separately. Come along to 1 or purchase as many as you like. Check out the topics below. Obtain full workshop details & secure your ticket on Eventbrite:
