Welcome to Te Puawai

We are a Year 1 and 2 classroom and our teachers are Geraldine Irvine and Jenny Cooksley.
Our classroom is named “Te Puawai” which means to flourish and grow.
We are a collaborative classroom and have a variety of exciting learning spaces where we can choose to work.
We want to grow our learner agency. That means to be self-regulated learners who set their own goals, and then learn and practice these. We can then share our new knowledge and skills with others.
We can all be "Tuakana" (leaders) and help others learn. At other times we are the "Teina", and require the help of others.
We celebrate Maori and Te Reo in our learning space. We start and finish our day with a karakia and a waiata.
We are looking forward to an exciting year together.
