Ngāi Tahu kaumatua Laurie Loper established the James Stewart Loper Bequest to accelerate progress on equity and excellence in education through the use of best evidence about teaching, learning and professional learning. The James Stewart Loper Bequest enabled Shirley Primary School to access the expertise of Associate Professor Bobbie Hunter, senior mentor, Trevor Bills, and others from the Massey University team to implement the pedagogy featured in BES Exemplar 1. This culturally responsive pedagogy accelerates progress in mathematics education and supports student collaboration and wellbeing.
