Kia Eke Panuku


Kia Eke Panuku: Building on Success is a professional development school reform initiative currently operating in 94 secondary schools from Kaitaia to Invercargill. The kaupapa of Kia Eke Panuku is:

Secondary schools give life to Ka Hikitia and address the aspirations of Māori communities by supporting Māori students to pursue their potential.

A consortium led by the University of Waikato, and including Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi and the University of Auckland, is delivering a PLD model that builds on the understandings gained from five previous programmes: Te Kotahitanga; He Kākano; the Starpath Project for Tertiary Participation and Success and the Secondary Literacy and Numeracy Projects.
