Summary

The Plan provides a strategic direction for improving education outcomes for Pasifika peoples in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

This monitoring report provides a national and regional picture of how Pasifika learners are progressing as the Plan is implemented in schools and communities. It gives us an idea of what level of progress is needed to achieve the Plan's goals and targets for 2012. Actions to improve outcomes in these identified areas are included in the Plan. The success of these actions will be assessed in this and subsequent monitoring reports to asses what we are doing to create an environment for Pasifika educational success.

Compass for Pasifika success:

The compass for Pasifika success is a fundamental part of the Plan. It is a visual representation which helps to ensure that Pasifika learners are at the heart of efforts to increase Pasifika presence, engagement and achievement. It is vital that all parts of the education system work together to achieve the goals and targets of the Plan.

Pasifika people have multiple world views and diverse cultural identities. They are able to operate and negotiate successfully through spiritual, social, political, cultural and economic worlds. Success in education requires harnessing Pasifika diversity within an enabling education system that works for young people, their families and communities. This requires the education system, leadership and curricula to start with the Pasifika learner at the centre, drawing on strong cultures, identities and languages.
