A community hui in the Bay of Plenty township of Murupara has been called in response to a petition objecting to the selection process for the name of the new area school.
The name of the kura is Te Awatea o Murupara, and has been approved by the Ministry of Education.
The petition, led by Rangi Anderson received at least 80 signatures, before it was handed to the board charged with setting up the school last Friday.
The Establishment Board of Trustees chairperson Jacob Te Kurapa says the hui has been set down for 6pm on Friday.
He says the board will talk about how the school name was selected, the significance of the name, and other developments at the kura.
Mr Te Kurapa wouldn't say whether or not the board would consider changing the name of the school - saying instead the hui would focus on the way the name was selected.
