The onus to build extra playgrounds may fall to the school’s board of trustees if the Ministry of Education is unwilling to pay an estimated $20,000 to $25,000 per additional playground. Haeata is one of four schools around the country which the MoE has paid $298 million in total to build. Haeata is a new super school opening for term one next year and is being built on the site of the former Aranui High School.

These are in addition to outdoor learning areas and the sports fields. “It is up to the school to decide how they use different learning areas, including the playgrounds,” he said. •Turn to page 5 Boost Brain Performance ENZO:PROFESSIONAL is a potent antioxidant extract of the NZ Pine Bark and has been clinically shown to improve memory, concentration & brain performance.
