PAI data

The latest data recently released by Education Minister, Nikki Kaye, tells a particularly good story about our region. Students in the Nelson, Marlborough, West Coast region had the second highest performance in National Standards in New Zealand in 2016. In reading, 80.9% achieved at or above the National Standard, and 76.6% in maths and 73.4% in writing. Pre-schoolers in the Nelson, Marlborough, West Coast education area had the second highest participation rates in early childhood education (ECE) in the country with 98.3% in early learning.

The latest PAI data is available on the Education Counts website .

The Deputy Secretary of Early Learning and Student Achievement, Pauline Cleaver, has commented specifically on the Nelson, Marlborough, West Coast results:

“Nelson, Marlborough, West Coast pre-schoolers are getting the best start to school they can with 98.3% in early childhood education. Primary school children, their teachers and their parents should be proud of their achievement in National Standards – Nelson pupils had the second highest performance in National Standards in New Zealand in 2016.”
