I Have a Dream overview

The I Have a Dream program first began operating in the Wesley community of Mt Roskill in 2003, with significant success.  We have now expanded to 4 low-decile schools in the high-needs Tikipunga and Otangarei communities of Whang─ürei.

The Mt Roskill “Dreamers” have achieved success across many metrics, including leadership, community participation, sports and quality of life.  But perhaps the most significant, and certainly the most easily quantified, is their educational success.  We tracked them against a Comparison Group, which was the Year Level ahead of them at the same Decile 1 Primary School in Mt Roskill.
