“A big mihi and thank you for the support that you have shown our whanau at Merivale School. In my 10 years as principal of Merivale, 2016 has been then most difficult with a large number of families becoming homeless throughout the year. The support from the community in such tough times has been awesome. The generosity from Variety and NZ Retail Property Group has meant that a number of our families are going to have a great Christmas with stress levels reduced.” – Jan Tinetti – Merivale School Principal

Outward Bound scholarships
Each year NZ Retail Property Group sponsors a group of students from 3 West Auckland Schools to go on an Outward Bound course. In September the students travel to the Marlborough Sounds to complete the Mind Body Soul Outward bound course. While on the course, the students build courage, resilience, experience success as a member of a team, develop an appreciation for the natural environment, learn about their own values and experience being of service. NZ Retail Property Group is pleased to be offering this life changing experience through scholarship to talented students across West Auckland.
