We want to express our gratitude to all the parents, teachers, young people and communities who shared their ideas and opinions at our recent fono across the country.
We heard from around 2,000 people on a wide range of issues and opportunities in education and beyond. We hosted eight education fono in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch, Oamaru and Dunedin, as well as a series of smaller fono across Auckland.
We received over 10,000 comments from participants. These are now being entered into our database. This work, to bring out the key themes and messages you have shared, will continue over the next few weeks until all of the information is captured.
