The Pasifika Success Compass captures the essence of the PEP – it places Pacific learners, parents, families, and communities at the centre of the compass. The points of the compass are nine values that are key to Pacific peoples’ ways of knowing, being, and doing – the values that underpin Pacific world views.
These key values are:
- reciprocal relationships
- alofa (love)
The fundamental elements of engagement, participation, and achievement are crucial to attaining highly effective learning outcomes. For Pacific learners, and their families and communities, these elements are attained through alignment and compatibility between home and educational environments. Reciprocal partnerships and engagement between all stakeholders ensures collaborative participation and shared understandings.
