Dr Rebecca Jesson from the Woolf Fisher Research Centre attended our recent Manaiakalani combined Boards of Trustees forum and presented current findings and recommendations resulting from the research carried out in our schools.
Her half hour presentation was informative, to the point and made very accessible for the audience - most of whom were not educators.
The graphic on the left illustrates one of the outstanding findings shared by the researchers - that learners who spend three consecutive years in the Manaiakalani programme make more progress than the average kiwi kid.
"Manaiakalani is one of the most effective interventions across the world for improving face to face conversation".
