Pacific Education - Working together to develop an Action Plan for Pacific Education

Closed 6 Oct 2019

Opened 1 Sep 2019


As part of the Education Conversation I Kōrero Mātauranga, thousands of Pacific learners and their families shared what is important to them in education and what they would like to see changed.

We heard that a good education system is one that values the diverse Pacific languages, identities and cultures and supports family wellbeing and success. A good education system means that Pacific children and their families don’t need to leave their culture at the door when they go to learn. Sadly, we heard that Pacific communities are experiencing racism, discrimination and bullying. 

We have already started responding to what we heard through the fono in 2018 and you can read about that here. To keep this work going we want to work reciprocally with Pacific communities to design a 10 year Action Plan for Pacific Education. 

If you would like to contribute to the Pacific Voices Conversation, please take 10 mins to complete this survey and/or come along to one of our fono.
