Catherine Delahunty and Marama Davidson at James Cook High

Greens Catherine Delahunty and Marama Davidson joined support staff at James Cook High, Manurewa.

Catherine Delahunty:  Well I’m here today at James Cook High School because it’s really important that we have a focus on school support staff, and that MPs understand what they actually do.

So we’ve had a chance to see what teacher aides do, and we see just what a big job it is.

And we really want to support central funding for them, and better opportunities for learning for them, so that they can support schools.

And right now these schools can’t function without them, but we haven’t got enough and they’re not supported properly.

So the Greens are here to support that kaupapa today.
