Research shows that schools need to pay more attention to the specific needs of Pasifika students including their language, literacy and culture. At Te Akau ki Papamoa School, we value our Pasifika learners and strive to help them excel in all curriculum areas.

Through increased participation in school experiences, we are working to improve outcomes for Pasifika learners. We are also making connections between the educational cultures of their families and communities, and the educational culture of the school.

Our goal is to have “five out of five Pasifika learners participating, engaging and achieving in education through building identity, languages and culture.”
