Praise for local schools
Haydon Brill, Principal of Puni School, is managing the formation of Community for Learning in the Pukekohe area and it is planned to be in operation at the end of the first term in 2016. “This means local kids in Hunua will benefit from shared teaching practices and expertise, with teachers working alongside each other on goals to help improve educational outcomes in the classroom,” Andrew Bayly said.
“I’m proud our schools realise that together they can achieve even more for our kids. Across the country, 793 schools have now committed to working together to raise student achievement – this will impact on nearly 135,000 Kiwi kids.”
“This is about a third of New Zealand students who will now benefit from their schools sharing expertise and resources.”
These school communities are funded through the Government’s $359 million Investing in Educational Success initiative.
“The communities will work together on challenges they identify for their children. National is focusing on improving performance in the schooling system to ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed,” Andrew Bayly said. Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
