Cyclone is a New Zealand owned ICT company that provides an efficient procurement capability for NZ All of Government agencies, tertiary institutions, schools and commercial organisations. Cyclone also has tier one relationships with all major vendors. Cyclone has partnered with Manaiakalani Education Trust to provide proactive procurement services to the Trust and its associated outreach schools. In addition, this partnership also encompasses leasing finance options, which allow the clusters to choose the best practice approach to procurement. 
The Manaiakalani model has set the standard for universal learning in New Zealand, facilitating access for all learners to achieve success and Cyclone is proud to support Manaiakalani in developing and expanding their model into other New Zealand communities. Cyclone value the opportunity to work with the trusts and to help the schools achieve their vision of connected and empowered learners.

The Manaiakalani Programme promotes new teaching and learning approaches across a growing cluster of low decile schools in the low income, predominantly Māori and Pacific communities of Tamaki (the East Auckland suburbs of Glen Innes, Panmure and Pt England).

This innovative programme gives Tamaki children
the opportunity to ‘be at home in a digital world’ so they can learn ‘anywhere, anytime and at any pace’.  Teachers encourage a passion for learning and a whanau engagement programme teaches parents how to use the technology to support their child’s learning. Manaiakalani Education Trust and participating schools have forged cross sector partnerships to sustain programme innovation and development.

A $130,000 Rotary grant has extended the reach of Kaikohekohe Education Trust and will be used primarily to fund the implementation of the project, the extensive training and professional development of the many teachers involved, and the salary of a facilitator and a part-time administrator whose role is essential to its success.
The grant from the international Rotary Foundation is being administered by the Rotary Club of Kerikeri. The money has been raised by Kerikeri Rotarian Keith Day, using a Rotary Foundation project-funding mechanism which draws on various ‘pots’ established by various Rotary administrative zones around the world.
The Rotary clubs of Kerikeri, Kaikohe and Bay of Islands have all contributed to the project, as has the Harold Thomas Trust and several other community Trusts across the region.
