It all started when...
This site became vacant after Kawerau Intermediate School merged with Kawerau College, now Tarawera High School, in November 2012.
Kawerau Bible Chapel purchased the site (originally known as the Kawerau Intermediate) in 2016. The property was then gifted to “Kawerau Life Konnect Charitable Trust”, the trust was established when Kawerau Bible Chapel needed a bigger space for the young people it worked with. The church knew the school site was for sale but thought it was too big for just young people.
The Chapel asked that the Trust use Biblical Values and Principles to benefit the Kawerau community. They had a vision of a safe and sound site that would add value to the people of Kawerau.
