New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern officially opened the two new Tereora College buildings on Thursday watched by local and New Zealand dignitaries, and the college’s students.

On August 4, 2015, during the Cook Islands celebration of 50 years of independence, former New Zealand prime minister John Key pledged up to $11.7 million to complete stage one of the project.

The Cook Islands government contributed an additional $3 million to get the buildings they wanted.

The opening of the building completes stage one of the four stage Tereora Construction.
