A Stress Free Schools project, which involves Consciousness-Based Education, is planned for a Maori school in Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand.

Two years ago Dr Ashley Deans gave a series of lectures in New Zealand about Maharishi's programmes for education. Dr Deans is Global Ambassador for Consciousness-Based Education of the Global Country of World Peace.

Since that time, people of a district in south Auckland, including the head teacher and the Deputy Mayor, have been enthusiastic about introducing the Transcendental Meditation Programme in their school. Already six of the teachers have learned Transcendental Meditation.

Inspiring support for the 150 children to learn is now underway, organized by the Davy family, who have been instrumental in instigating Maharishi's programmes in New Zealand for many years. They hope to be able to teach the children in July.

Recently Raja Robert Wynne, Raja of New Zealand for the Global Country of World Peace, visited New Zealand for a ten-day Invincibility Tour. He visited the school in Auckland along with Dr Graeme Lodge, National Director of New Zealand for the Global Country of World Peace, Dr Lodge's wife Raylene, and others who have been involved in the project to introduce Consciousness-Based Education in the school.

Raylene Lodge said the students listened to every word Raja Wynne said and seemed very inspired. 'Afterwards they sang us some beautiful songs in their native language, which was very touching.'
