Allandale School is preparing for Marae DIY as they upgrade the school Meeting House named Te Kaitiaki o Motueka next February.

Allandale School principal Rex Wilson says their project was encouraged by their kaumatua Julian Tunui to apply for a Marae DIY work project.

The end of last year brought a great result according to Rex Wilson when they received a call from Marae DIY informing them of a withdrawal by a prospective client and their inclusion.

No reira kua ea tera wahanga e ai ki a Rex Wilson
