Native Affairs – The In Zone – Part 1

  • Auckland

IIf you're Maori, and attend Auckland Grammar you're 3 times more likely to achieve NCEA level 3.

In fact Maori boys at Auckland Grammar are achieving at similar if not higher levels than the average pakeha student.

But to get this kind of education for your son, you have to live in Auckland Grammar's Zone, where the average entry-level home costs around 1 million dollars.

If you can't afford to live in-zone, your chances of getting in are slim to none.

That's until the "In Zone" project an independent hostel  giving Maori and Pacific boys the chance at a Grammar education.
