MP for the Kaikōura electorate Stuart Smith says the Government is continuing to support local schools.

“I’m proud that this Government is investing more than $276 million from Budget 2016 in Canterbury infrastructure,” says Mr Smith.

“Here in the Kaikoura electorate we will benefit from two new classrooms at Amuri Area School.

“Over the last six months the Ministry of Education has been working with the school, and I’m pleased Budget 2016 has confirmed funding for these new classrooms.

“Like other parts of the country we are experiencing population growth and this investment will ensure our schools can meet the needs of current and future students.

“We want to make sure we’re addressing roll growth and providing flexible spaces to support innovative learning environments for Kiwi children,” says Mr Smith.
