New Zealand Government allocates $126m for four new projects in national school rebuild programme

The Government is pumping $126m into four new projects as part of its national schools rebuild programme.

At the end of last year, the Government then announced $400 million in new funding for most state schools to invest locally in building companies and tradies to fix leaking roofs and windows and do other repair and building work.
