New education funding to address wellbeing needs as a result of COVID-19
The Government has announced a $66 million package in new funding to support the immediate wellbeing of our learners and educators as a result of COVID-19.
The package includes a $50 million Urgent Response Fund. This will provide immediate support to centre-based early learning services, schools and kura to improve attendance, and to help manage any learning, social, emotional, mental, or other child and youth wellbeing needs directly related to COVID-19. Another $16 million is to support educator wellbeing for the employees of publicly funded early learning services, kōhanga reo, school and kura and their families. For more information, go to the news story: $66 million for learner and educator wellbeing.
