St Paul’s Collegiate School in Hamilton has won a Prime Minister’s Education Excellence Award.
The award, ‘Excellence in Leading – Atakura Award’, celebrates leadership and influence that has strengthened professional capability and created a change in conditions, leading to improved and sustained outcomes for children and young people.
A quest to combine state-of-the-art architecture and a nurturing, homely environment for young children has driven the design of the brand new early childhood centre at Kristin School, Little Doves Early Learning Centre.
The new centre has now been officially opened after many years of planning and construction, focussed on offering children and their families a place of high-tech contemporary design and old-fashioned natural play spaces.
