Labour Leader, Andrew Little Impressed With Charity House

13 May 2016

Leader of the New Zealand Labour Party​, Andrew Little​ and Labour's Housing spokesperson, Phil Twyford​ visited Mokoia Campus this morning.

Speaking on Labour's plan to offer 3 years free tertiary education to New Zealanders, Mr Little was quick to highlight how one particular annual project at Waiariki Bay of Plenty Polytechnic had taken his eye - our student built Charity House.

"I'm really impressed about the approach that has been taken with this project. Developing new ways to build a house and make it healthy. It's not just how to build a house you're teaching here, but the science of it as well.

"New materials, techniques and technologies that can be used to teach kiwis how to make not only affordable homes, but healthy homes as well."
