Our Partner Organisation

The Cook Islands Ministry of Education aims to ensure an education system which is inclusive, equitable, fair and just, with a teaching curriculum which is accessible by all children of the Cook Islands.  It looks to achieve this through an education system that identifies and includes students with special learning needs, implements appropriate programmes and monitors their progress within a culture of understanding. This applies to all students who are at risk of not developing to their full educational potential.
