A $3 million
heritage tourism project, using high technology to portray
stories of early Oamaru, has failed in its bid to obtain
funding from the Ministry of Economic Development
Enterprising Partnerships fund.
The Ministry of Education has been asked to consult the
boards of trustees at Hampden, Maheno and Weston schools on
the possibility of retaining education on the Otepopo School
site in Herbert as a "second campus" of one of the schools.
