There is going to be an announcement on money for schools this afternoon:

Parata will announce how the Christchurch Education Renewal Programme money will be spent, and when, at a function at Peppers Clearwater Resort at 1.30pm.

So Lady Gardiner, our Minister of Education, is going to announce decisions that will impact on schools across Christchurch, but in particular, those in the poorest areas of town. To do this, she’s not chosen a school, but one of Christchurch’s most exclusive golf resorts. Who says the National Party is out of touch of the common man?
