Prime Minister John Key says the Queen has agreed to the new centre being named the Queen Elizabeth II Pukeahu Education Centre.

"This education centre, in the former Home of Compassion creche, will be a lasting tribute to Her Majesty's long life of service," Mr Key said.

"It is also a real enhancement for the park, giving school students and visitors a place to learn more about Pukeahu and New Zealand's experience of military conflict, peace keeping and commemoration."

An event to celebrate the opening of the Queen Elizabeth II Pukeahu Education Centre will be held later this year.
