Better Public Services Result 2 - Case Study: Pasifika Study Hubs
Published:8 July 2013
Last updated: 20 February 2014
The Achieving Through Pasifika Languages (ATPL) study hubs located in the Avondale Tongan Catholic community have taken a complete education pipeline approach and now include Early Learning playgroups. Pre-schoolers access early childhood education (ECE) while Year 1-8 and Year 9-13 students/siblings receive homework support. One hub has a Tamaki College teacher helping Years 11, 12 and 13 students prepare for external exams. This is the first time that some of these children have had access to these services and is a great opportunity to introduce them and their families to the value of ECE. The Ministry is working with other ATPL providers to establish more playgroups.
