Visit of the Prime Minister

We were glad to be able to offer the children the chance to meet ‘the man who runs New Zealand’ when the Prime Minister John Key visited Mana Montessori in September 2010.

We were pleased to have the Prime Minister visit our school.  We were invited to take the opportunity to show the Prime Minister the high quality Montessori education that we are providing for children with the assistance of government’s funding.  We were also invited to discuss with Mr Key the concerns we had raised previously with the government about the cuts being made to our government funding from the start of 2011.

Mr Key was able to observe the classes in action and to see children in both the Red and Blue classrooms engaged in and enjoying their learning activities.  It was a very positive occasion for the children and we were very proud of how beautifully they behaved.
