Whānau play a pivotal role in the success and development of student learning.

The Partnership

The partnership between whānau and school remains at the very centre of what we are trying to achieve. Supporting learners both in and out of school time is central to the development of key academic abilities and brings a very strong chance of accelerated progress. 

Chromebook Information

The Ako Hiko Education Trust partners with Manaiakalani Education Trust to source what we believe is the best digital tool for students. Devices undergo rigorous testing procedures to assess usability, longevity and sturdiness. Testing sturdiness is a high priority as this reduces the number of claims for failure or breakage. Our current model is the Acer C734.  We supply the Chromebook as a bundle which includes a durable bag, 3 year warranty and 3 year device care package.
