12-year Kōrero / Interviews















    Growing Up in New Zealand's 12 Year Kōrero or 12 Year Interviews get underway in October 2021! 

    On this page, you can find out more about what to expect when we come to connect with you again around the time your child is 12-years-old.  We've chosen this age to touch base with you again because this is a critical time in children's development as they are about to become teenagers. 

    We want to learn more about what's important to the children, what they like to do and how they view their place in the world.  

    We're looking forward to reconnecting with you all and learning more about the Growing Up children and their families and whānau.

    The information you and your child share with us provides valuable insights for researchers and decision-makers to make real changes to improve the lives of all children in Aotearoa-New Zealand.
