Dear Enquiries National,
This request was forwarded to Richmond Road School, for whom I have already requested the information. Richmond Road School provided parts of the information. However continue to withhold specific information pertaining to the Exact Budget Breakdown of Maori Language Proficiency spending.

Richmond Road School Board Chairperson Agnes Loheni has also written to inform me that the hiring process for the Roopu Leader for 2015, is not of public interest. As a member of the public I beg to differ. There was no transparency and so the processes are right to be questioned.

The minutes of sections of Board Meetings held in committee, are deemed confidential. In my complaint to the Ombudsman I have queried the improper use of "committee" by the Board and hoping to see what comes of this.

Yours sincerely,

Mameroa David

Dear Enquiries National,

Ministry of Education has said that schools are self governing and therefore the MoE does not see it as their responsibility to provide this information
