If only the good folk at TVNZ had looked at the Education Review Office report they would have learned:
The school roll is predominantly Pacific and boys from the local area and wider Auckland community attend the school.
The 2008 ERO review raised concerns about the quality of teaching and learning, the provision of a safe emotional and physical environment for staff and students, and aspects of management and governance that impacted on student learning and achievement
Instead we are supposed to believe that Wonder-Boy John is a near genius and a wannabe surgeon!!! I have no doubt, that he'll make it to medical school but that will have more to do with affirmative action than academic prowess.
