School Stories

Divider 

An ex-pupil whose ambition is to be the first Maori dux of the prominent local private girl's school she attends - she is well on her way to achieving that goal.

Divider 

Two parents who have gone back to high school to finish their education and make up the time they wasted before they realised it meant something - so they can show their kids that's what they expect for them too.

Divider

The prison inmate who wants to learn to read "because I've got kids at Camberley and they've got all these books there and when I get out of here, I want to be able to read with them so they won't end up in here like me." The same inmate said to his fellow inmates, "Do you want to share a cell with your son?" ANOTHER CYCLE BROKEN.

  Here are just some of the benefits that can be partly or
fully attributed to the Duffy Books in Homes programme:

  • A closeness between community and school
  • Improved attitudes allround
  • No bullying
  • No truancy
  • Vandalism has fallen from $15,000 to $1,500 a year
  • Proud students
  • A willingness to cooperate
  • A hunger to learn
  • A love of books
  • A respect of property, each other, and one's self
  • Duffy kids take these qualities to high school with them
