Parakai School's Māori Medium Unit to close

By Harata Brown

The Board of Parakai School has confirmed it will close the school's Māori Medium Unit (MMU) next month.

This is the last MMU in the South Kaipara District, and the families of Te Whare Kākano say although they've tried hard to keep the unit open, the school has disagreed.

Our reporter, Harata Brown, met with parents of some of the children in the unit today.
