The KATTI Program is a leadership and development program which for high school students in Years 10-13, which helps with the attitudes towards your education.
This program has been running since 2002 and was initially set up to help young Maori students achieve well throughout school and earn workable national qualifications. During 1986, 53.4% of Maori students leaving school, left with no qualifications, showing that more than half of the students were falling in the education system. And over the years it has slowly gotten better with it now being at 21%.
