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.
This month marks the 20th year of COMET Auckland - Te Hononga Akoranga. We are celebrating 20 years of championing change in diverse areas, such as financial literacy, ECE provision, youth transition and intergenerational learning. Our vision is everyone has the right to shine and realise their dreams through lifelong learning. To do this the power of weaving people together for the greater good underpins our work.
To help commemorate COMET’s 20th we have taken to our social media featuring staff, board and key stakeholders talking about why they are involved with COMET, using a photo and story from their past. Make sure you check it out our Facebook page.
