Strengthening the Learning Support Community
"Mahia te mahi, hei painga mo te iwi. Manaakitia te iwi, whangaingia te tangata. Kia mau ki te aroha, me te rangimarie." Te Puea Hērangi
Do the work, for the benefit of the people. Uplift and serve the people. Hold fast to love and peace, these are the foundations.
Tuesday 17th May
9am – 3:30pm – Royal Oak Primary School
The focus of our day is to deepen the relationships within the Learning Support Community by working together – kanohi ki te kanohi. Using Transitions as a focus, our community will have the opportunity to work together on practical examples that are connected to our contexts. We will explore these using the planning framework ‘One Plan’, that sits under our practice model – He Pikorua
