Just been reading the 2015 annual report for Vanguard School.
Their results have seen them in the top ten schools for all of Auckland. Their students got 100% success for NCEA Level 1 and Level 3 and 93% for Level 2.
Now is this a school cherry picking the brightest and best students from all over Auckland? No, it is generally students who were failing in other schools.
56% of their roll is Pasifika and Maori. 53% come from South and West Auckland.
Have a read through their annual report, especially the quotes from the students about what a difference this school has made to them.
And then ask your local Labour or Green MP why they are determined to close this school down.
