Growing Great Learners
Te Whakatipu Akonga Miharo
Whanaungatanga; Ako; Kaitiakitanga; Manaakitanga
We are currently planning how best to launch these values with our learners at the beginning of 2021. There will be explicit teaching and modelling of what each value looks like in action.
Whanaungatanga is all about connection, kinship and whānau. A big part of this value is knowing each other; our beliefs, our passions, things we find tricky, aspirations and dreams. The epitome of this value in action is to feel a strong sense of belonging and to be celebrated for who we are and what we stand for.
Ako is underpinned by the concept of learning from each other. We all have knowledge that is shaped by our passions, experiences and beliefs. We believe that learners have a lot to offer in the classroom and beyond and that together, adults and children can strengthen each other’s knowledge and understanding in a range of ways.
