Ka Hikitia in action

Ka Hikitia in Action showcases the critical role parents, whānau and communities play in helping their children to learn. It illustrates that Māori educational success can be achieved when communities, iwi, schools, early learning centres or the Ministry work in collaboration – mahi tahi.
