Lia Mapa, Le'autuli'ilagi Sauvao, and Val Podmore

This NZARE conference paper summarises the results of a small-scale, exploratory study which was designed to include around 6 families from each of 5 ethnic groups (Cook Islands, Niue, Samoan, Tokelauan, and Tongan).

The intention was to provide an account of the experiences of children, parents, and teachers focusing on language and other aspects of children's move from Pacific Islands early childhood centres into English-language primary schools.

Paper presented at the New Zealand Association for Research in Education (NZARE) conference, Hamilton, 1 December 2000.
