Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey is delighted Waimakariri resident Christopher Houghton has been awarded a Kupe Scholarship.

The award was presented this week at a ceremony in Wellington.

“The successful scholars demonstrate strong academic success,” Doocey said. “The Kupe Scholarships look to encourage teaching as a profession among Māori and Pasifika, and it’s wonderful to see a local student teacher chosen from such a high calibre of applicants.”

The scholarships fund course fees and study allowances, and also provide professional mentoring and recruitment support after graduation.
