Welcome to COMET Auckland - Te Hononga Akoranga.
We are an Auckland Council-controlled organisation and a not-for-profit.
We address the areas of greatest educational needs from early childhood to life-long learning in your community. We identify significant hurdles and work with the education sector and others to change the system to create more equitable learning pathways for all. We currently lead six main initiatives.
All babies and young children to thrive as thinkers, talkers and readers.
South Auckland children as leaders in STEM - science, technology, engineering and mathematics education & innovation.
CE's highlights - giving children and young people real-world challenges that are relevant to them.
One of the joys of my job is seeing the changes young people and families are making in their own lives, as a result of their learning. Highlights this month have included signing certificates for the 93 Auckland young people who completed the Youth Employability Programme this year; reading students’ articles in the annual Student Voice magazine that’s hot off the press this week; and attending the 2019 SouthSci Symposium where student groups reported back on their research projects.
