Our School‎ > ‎

Kāhui Ako o Wakatipu

We belong to a network of learning organisations including Early Childhood Centres, all the Primary Schools and our Highschool.  We are unique in that most of our students from all the primary schools all feed into the one Highschool.  

We believe being a part of our Kāhui Ako has the potential to strengthen the learning opportunities for our students due to being connected with such a strong network of passionate leaders and learners.  We intend to maintain our school's identity, while collaborating and sharing expertise, so all our children’s learning pathways are supported and their transition through the education system is optimal.

We seek to be consultative and we are strongly motivated to improve our place of learning. As ERO identified “Making the decision to form a community requires shifts in both thinking and practice. For many leaders, teachers, children and young people, parents, families and whänau, their school/early learning service is the teaching and learning organisation they know best. While this does not change, the big challenge is to move beyond focusing on ‘my school/early learning service’ to ‘our schools/early learning service’ – to a collective responsibility for the equity and excellence of outcomes for all children and young people within the Kähui Ako.” 

Collaborative inquiry, along with coaching and mentoring, are the approaches we are focusing on to building teacher’s individual and collective capacity to serve the needs of every learner. Our thinking is grounded in the belief that we approach our challenges with a growth mindset.
