We are part of Manaiakalani, an education programme achieving significant improvement in student achievement outcomes for 12 schools in the Auckland suburbs of Glen Innes, Pt England and Panmure. By offering students full digital citizenship, the Manaiakalani Programme is not only achieving improved educational results, but also realising the potential for enhanced employment and life outcomes for our students.
To make digital citizens of our students and their whanau, we enable them to access their learning anywhere, anytime and at any pace. We do this by providing access to a personalised netbook and wireless internet access at home and school and by supporting Manaiakalani teachers in their continuing pedagogical innovation.
From Year 5, St Patrick’s pupils own their own netbook. Read more about our netbook programme.
