WaitakiriVISION

 

Our New Learning Environment

Our new school is an Innovate Learning Space. You can view the plans here.

The new school is designed with notions of sustainability, future focus, 21st century learners and community as foundational. A school that reflects our community, our beliefs and values and our aspirations for our children. With all that our community have survived over the last several years this is time for celebration and innovation.

 

Our Learning

In 2014 the team at Waitākiri School created a new curriculum for the children of the merged school. Values that emerged are those of environmental sustainability, innovation, community, collaboration, lifelong learning and problem solving. Excellence in numeracy and literacy will be achieved through engaging children in authentic learning contexts and challenges. Take a look at our Class Blogs!
