This video tells the story of Northland woman Del Bristow and the Bay of Islands College school community. Learn how the school and community chose to do things differently and as a result, 50 of 57 students who were supported by their whānau and school to achieve NCEA level 2, went on to get their qualifications.

In 2013 Bay of Islands College started the Community Champion project - a first for the country. The project trains community members to work with whānau so they feel confident about how NCEA works and know what they can do to help their child achieve. Introduced by the Ministry of Education's Parents, Families, Whānau team with support from Student Achievement Function practitioners, the Community Champion project has trained 60 community members across Northland and demonstrates the powerful things that can happen when schools, whānau, community and government work together to raise educational achievement and enjoyment.
