MAPAS students receive Rose Hellaby Award

26 July 2013

Two of our MAPAS students recently received Rose Hellaby Maori Education Scholarships at an award ceremony in Auckland. Congratulations to Waimirirangi Stone (CertHSc), Laine Marsh (MBChB Year 3) and Moerangi Tamati (MBChB Year 3) who each received one of the scholarships which are made available through the Māori Education Trust to Māori undergraduate students studying to become qualified or employed in a profession or calling which includes scientific, mathematical or technical skills.

Ro se Hell aby was a daughter of meat industry giant William Hellaby who with his brother established R & W Hellaby Limited which in the early part of last century was regarded as New Zealand’s largest company with over 250 employees. Rose Hellaby’s substantial estate included a historic home in West Auckland which is owned by the Auckland Council. Through the Māori Education Trust and Guardian Trust, her name lives on in a series of scholarships for Māori students from college through to postgraduate level.
