Celebrating 10 years of school & kura connections
Over the last 10 years, we’ve provided faster, safer internet for schools and kura in Aotearoa. Thanks to our incredibly hard-working team, the Ministry of Education, and partners, we’ve made a tangible difference to ākonga across the motu.
During our short history, we’ve managed to connect 100% of eligible kura to the internet through our Managed Network. This means we now connect, protect and support over 2,460 kura and 840,000 ākonga and kaiako, blocking 3.2 million online security threats every school day. We couldn’t have achieved these milestones without the passion and drive from everyone involved, including the Ministry of Education, partners, shareholders, the community, and our wonderful kura.
But where to next? We’re committed to empowering kaiako and ākonga to teach and learn safely online while making a meaningful impact in the education sector. We look forward to the future and can’t wait to see where the next ten years take us.

“Our continued success as a technology company working with schools and kura is credited as much to the capabilities of our highly skilled people as it is to the relationships they form with our partners in education, technology and government.”

Growing up in the Philippines, where my family ran an internet café. We grew a sense of community and that’s what sparked my interest in technology and the opportunities it opens up in people’s lives. Really feeling like I’m making an impact and helping serve our education community, is one of the things I love the most. Read the full story.
I whakapapa to Twizel and am the proud dad of three. Starting out as a secondary school teacher, my team’s role is to engage with schools and figure out their needs to support them along their technical journey. No two schools are the same — that’s one of the things I love the most. Read the full story.
I moved with my family to NZ to be able to provide a better education for my children. I feel extremely grateful to work for a company that contributes to the educational needs of young Kiwis. The transformation over my time has been huge and I think that will continue for the next decade. Read the full story.
Getting up in the morning to work in a fast-paced, high-energy environment that genuinely makes a difference — that’s meaningful mahi to me. I look at my children and I know I’m helping shape the future of their learning here in Aotearoa. I feel really lucky to be able to say that. Read the full story.

Celebrating our customers
We’ve worked alongside the Ministry of Education, other government agencies, technology companies and community organisations to help ensure ākonga can learn safely online. One of the most recent initiatives has been working with the Ministry of Education on the Te Mana Tūhono programme to upgrade school network equipment across Aotearoa and ensure a safer, more seamless Wi-Fi experience.
Our customers’ stories
When this small rural school upgraded their Wi-Fi network, they were able to bring the world to the children and open up learning possibilities. Find out how we helped give them a safer and more seamless network. Watch Windwhistle School’s story here.
Schools and kura will need smart ideas, simply delivered as technology becomes a bigger enabler of the delivery of education in Aotearoa. We’re looking forward to connecting, protecting and supporting kura to deliver great outcomes, and helping ākonga to thrive.
