Pakiki Kids (often referred to simply as PK) is a weekly one-day extension programme for intellectually and creatively gifted children in Dunedin (Years 3-8). The programme is governed and managed by Dunedin North Intermediate School.
Pakiki Kids delivers a specialised, differentiated curriculum (the MindPlus programme developed by the New Zealand Centre for Gifted Education) while also offering gifted students the opportunity to learn with like-minded peers.

If your child attends a school that currently is not a PK Cluster School, then please feel free to talk to your school about the possibility of them getting involved with the programme or contact the PK Coordinator for more information.
