Last updated by Breda Matthews

Hi everyone,

    Thank you to those who shared forms to collect ELLP  data from mainstream teachers. It is that time of year when teachers are looking at the progress students have made and collecting data. 


So have you seen the new look interactive guidance on completing the ELLP matrices? The grid now has links from the red arrows - see the screenshot below.




There are also additional texts and links exemplifying each level - see the screenshot below. 





This week is Tokelau Language Week.  Find resources and information here

In relation to Tokelau Language Week we shared two resources with a focus on Tokelau


  • Solar Power in Tokelau highlights the world-first achievement of Tokelau in using renewable energy sources (solar energy and coconut oil) for all its electricity. It explains why Tokelau decided to switch from using fossil fuels and includes comments from a Tokelau family that illustrate the impact of the change. 

  • Tafoe O Every Sunday, a group of Tokelau adults and children meet in Wellington to pass on cultural knowledge. Recently, artist and master carver Paulino Tuwhala guided the group through the task of carving foe (paddles), which they used to perform a tafoe (dance).
