Exemplary School Visit

Kia ora Nick and Elly,
A massive thank from us all at the Institute of Education for the manaakitanga and expertise shared with the MTchgLn teachers and staff. We learned so much from your presentation, ambassador-guided visits to diverse learning spaces and then student-directed See-Saw conversations. It was breath-taking and humbling to see so much evidence of teachers’ and students’ agency, leadership and creativity that reflects your school’s vision for all learners. From the chooks to cutting edge digital technology we saw the very best in education and we are so privileged to partner with your school. Thank you too for this presentation which we’ll use on Monday to further reflect on our learning with you this morning.
He kura tangata he tanagata kura We value each other’s scholarship and talents, and we cherish the importance of collaborative partnerships.
Ngā mihi Ally

BOT Meeting

We had a great discussion at tonight's BOT meeting about Empowerment...

Compliance - Engagement - Empowerment

Empowerment is so important when our kids go into an environment where they are forced back into compliance.The possibilities are so huge when kids are empowered.Our kids teach us - they are much more capable than I ever was (a comment from Cindy)How are our kids going to adapt when they go into a different environment if they are not empoweredThese kids are our future leaders
My thoughts...

Values are even more important now to underpin Empowerment
