Reflecting the different cultures of your school community within the school and home environment provides students and families a tangible reminder of the school's commitment to cultural diversity.  More than just being symbolic, it creates an inclusive atmosphere and a sense of shared ownership

What it does

Knowledge and skills that young people acquire during this period influence their pathway into tertiary education, the labour market, and beyond

How we built it

New Zealand’s education system continuously produces innovative new ways to further our current curriculum, while reviewing what is currently in place to ensure that it is contemporary and fits the needs of today’s youth. Learning circles use the real-world issues of the participants as a sort of ‘active case study’ for exploration and action planning. When properly facilitated, Learning Circles create change as well as enable the development of trust, authenticity, and resilience for learners and their whanau (families). 

Challenges we ran into

Covid disrupted the timeframe when implementing milestones 1-3.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The design of what it looks like for local communities, sponsors, and especially learners and their whanau (whanau)

What we learned

Kotahitanga working together provides opportunities for collective impacts.
