Whanau Approach to Learning
Our Whanau Learning environment has been co-constructed to enhance our supportive school culture. This is about establishing inclusive learning opportunities within a Whanau (Family) type structure. This learning environment we believe enriches our school’s culture through mixed social and academic engagement, that enables progress and achievement through collaborative approaches that fosters respect for self and others.
As a school we are privileged to work with and have a close partnership with Ngati Whakaue kaumatua. This relationship benefits all our students as residents of Rotorua in having a positive understanding of local iwi, local history and traditional Maori tikanga. ‘From Knowledge and awareness grows understanding and respect’.
