Whaia te iti kahurangi

Search for great things*

In 2011 Pearson realised a long-term strategic goal of becoming a preferred supplier to the Ministry of Education for Māori Medium publishing. We are now contracted directly from the Ministry of Education to provide Māori content  for distribution to Kura Kaupapa (Primary) and Wharekura (Secondary) schools. Being a preferred supplier enables Pearson to work directly with the Ministry to plan, develop and deliver high quality Māori medium resources for schools. 

* From a whakataukī or proverbial saying most often used to inspire, to succeed, to aim high, to achieve ones' goals in life; to work hard and to the best of ones ability to achieve these things. This proverb is used commonly for education in its broadest sense - education begins at birth and ends at death.
