Pasifika students are likely to use an inviting library that helps them achieve their learning goals. Here we outline ways to develop library and information services for Pasifika students.
Create an inclusive library
This section provides information and advice on providing a welcoming and inclusive environment and services for all students in your school.
Your school library provides opportunities for Māori students to connect with a wide range of quality information resources. Here you'll find information and resources to help you develop a school-wide information literacy programme using an inquiry learning approach.
Your school library plays a key role in helping your Māori and all other students aware of their culture and heritage, and the diversity of other cultures. This is vital, as they develop their self-identity, sense of values, and the competencies that will enable them to realise their potential.
School libraries that provide an appealing social space will appeal to ALL of your students. Our learning spaces need to create a Tūrangawaewae - place where you belong for students. As the library should be the learning heart for our schools, then this principle is even more important in this space.
