About the Project

This transition project was birthed out of a concern experienced by many Southland schools.  This being the frequent movement of children between schools, usually as a result of the their parents employment.  Many of these children's parents are connected with the Dairy industry.  This project seeks to ensure we as educators provide support to these children when they move schools.

With the administrative support of School Kit and financial support of DairyNZ we are piloting this project.  Any Southland school who has children leaving and moving to another Southland School can complete the very simple form found below.  This will provide some simple yet useful information to the receiving school.  It will also alert the RTLB service to the movement.  Over time the data, excluding identifying information, will be used to provide a more robust picture of children's education movements in Southland.
