23 October Meeting Report (Reporter - Jim)

  • Fifty-three Rotarians, Lions and Kohewhata Marae members met at the Northland College Hubb training establishment.

  • Northland College principal Jim Luders spoke on the challenges, changes and plans for Northland College and education in general.

  • The challenges include the backgrounds and homelife of the students and when they get into trouble they often have a story with a lot of baggage and hurt.

  • 90% of his pupils are lovely, with some earning scholarships up to $30,000. The college forest is being harvested to pay historic debt.

  • The farm is to be associated with Lincoln University.

  • He is encouraged seeing a number of highly educated people coming back to Kaikohe, and saw the art in town as in part a rebranding of Kaikohe and the College.

  • Schools are now partly a social service and already education is moving towards, and close to 50% electronic and some schools are going to a much higher percentage.

  • He issued a welcome for all parents and members of the community to visit the college during open hours.

  • During the evening a raffle and sergeants session raised $140 which was given to the Kohewhata Marae trustees for their childrens playground.
