South Pacific Press
South Pacific Press Limited (SPP) was founded in 2004 by Neale Pitches and Meryl-Lynn Pluck of Rainbow Reading. SPP has a vision to develop world-class learning materials — focused on accelerating student achievement.
We created CSI Literacy, a family of evidence-based literacy resources for students in the middle years of schooling. CSI Literacy is now being used in classrooms across New Zealand, Australia, USA, UK, Hong Kong and Singapore.
In 2007, South Pacific Press acquired Lift Education from its founder, Dr Sue Watson, a colleague of ours.
professional learning course for teachers, based on the successful CSI Literacy approach.
In 2014, South Pacific Press has begun a partnership with the Commonwealth Education Trust to represent its anniversary resource A River of Stories to New Zealand Schools.
While South Pacific Press Limited is our legal trading name, we focus all our activity under the two imprints and trading names of Lift Education and CSI Literacy.
Our team of highly capable resource developers comprises educators, editors, project managers, intellectual property specialists, marketers, instructional designers and digital developers who work across both Lift Education and CSI Literacy.
