  • National School Roll Projections

    Projections and forecasts of school rolls are used by the Ministry of Education to assess the demand for resources in the school sector. They support the forecasting of expenditure on teachers’ salaries, schools’ operations grants, and student allowances, as part of the Government’s five-year budget forecasts. The forecast rolls are snapshots; they project primary year-levels as at 1 July and secondary year-levels as at 1 March. The production of a range of projections allows for exploration of medium and long-term effects of different scenarios or assumptions, while forecasts (based on preferred projections) are a best estimate of enrolment numbers in the short term.

    These reports include a breakdown of the major changes between the current forecast and the previous forecast. A brief description of the methodology used in the forecast is also provided.

    This article surveys recent work on school ICT projects.

In order to illustrate how these ideas play out in “real-world” situations, the article also profiles one New Zealand school-based ICT initiative as a case study—the Tech Angels project at Wellington Girls’ College, focussing in particular on how this school’s experiences can help other schools considering setting up similar programmes.

  • Completely different or a bigger version? Experiences and effects of the transition to secondary school

    Most of the Competent Children, Competent Learners study sample changed school when they went on to secondary level. This transition often involved some marked change in the characteristics of the school they attended - moving to a much larger school, or to a single-sex school. Friends were often lost in the process - but they were also gained. But secondary school offered students a wider range of experiences, rather than a totally new world.
