Photo of Peter HughesEvery day I come to work motivated by the knowledge that education is the key to a successful future for our kids. I know it’s the same for you. Whether you’re giving kids the best start with quality early learning, continuing to draw out and sharpen their strengths through their years in school or kura, or helping them move into further education or the workforce following pathways that fit their skills and ambitions. Each stage of the journey is important.


The work you do every day makes a difference for our children and young people. It’s a privilege to be here, supporting the crucial work you do.

I wish each of you and your families a safe and refreshing holiday. Enjoy this time out with family and friends, and I look forward to working with you in the New Year.
