Our Impact Together

Every year, around 2,900 Kiwi kids are lucky to be born with extraordinary minds and abilities. Together, we want to make sure that every one of them can get the support they need to achieve their potential.

With your support

Our incredible teachers made the magic happen for 674 students from over 280 schools across our range of MindPlus programmes

In 2022 so far, we have awarded 21 MindPlus Scholarships to exceptional students in financial need. In line with our strategy to increase under-representation, 70% of these students are girls, almost 60% are Māori and 14% Pasifika students, and over 50% come from Decile 1-4 schools.

Financial support of over $130k allowed 143 gifted students in financial need to access the support they need to achieve their potential

 

Our MindPlus OurSchool face-to-face programme brought together classes of Y2-8 gifted kids in 14 locations across New Zealand -  from our big cities to regional towns, across the North and South Islands

 

Our MindPlus PreSchool programmes in Auckland and Christchurch supported 50 gifted littlies aged 2-6 and their families in a face-to-face weekly programme

 

Our MindPlus Online and Badges programmes brought together 40 gifted kids online with our specialist teachers, connecting kids all over New Zealand - and some offshore

 

Our new MindPlus YourSchool programme, piloting in 2022, was designed together with schools to allow gifted kids at MindPlus Partner Schools anywhere in Aotearoa to access specialist gifted support

 

Gifted NEX, our network of over 1200 principals, learning support teachers and classroom teachers from across New Zealand, shared learning on how to support gifted students
