An Act to provide the Rotorua High Schools Board with the original power of acquiring land to hold the same on existing endowment trusts

Preamble

Whereas the Rotorua High Schools Board (in this Act called the Board) is the registered proprietor and lessor of certain endowment land in the District of Rotorua and is in receipt of income therefrom not always desirable or needed for immediate or complete expenditure in terms of the Board’s endowment trusts: and whereas for the better investment of such surplus money or other accrued funds held by the Board it is desirable in the interests of the endowment trusts that the Board should have original power to acquire or receive as gifts or bequests other or further land and to have power to erect buildings on any land held by the Board: and whereas the Board is not empowered to acquire or accept as gifts or bequests any land in the manner contemplated under the Education and Training Act 2020 or the Education Lands Act 1949.
