Science Success at De La Salle College, Mangere

South Auckland school leading way in Pasifika students' science success

There might not be a big representation of Pacific Islanders in medicine and health sciences right, but a South Auckland school is changing that.

De La Salle College's science faculty is among the 15 finalists at the Prime Minister's Education Excellence Awards 2018.

The head of the science faculty, Kane Raukura says back in 1997 he taught six students in his chemistry class. Now, they have two chemistry classes of 30 students, two physics classes of 30 students, and year 13 classes are also bursting at the seams with 30 students in each class for physics, chemistry and biology.
