Kaitiaki Academy

What an exciting start to the term!  On Thursday last week we ran out first Kaitiaki Academy.  There are 31 students involved in this opportunity and their wero is to bring their knowledge and learning back to their kura to help normalise te reo Māori.  Massive thanks to Hau Ariki marae, Raihānia Tipoki, Matua Wiremu and everyone else from the Hau Ariki tangata whenua who took part in the wonderful pōwhiri to welcome us and this kaupapa to the marae.

Kaitiaki opportunity for staff

After our student academy, we ran a session for staff.  We are thrilled to see Principals and kaiako taking this opportunity.  We understand that some people were unable to make the first session but are keen to join in from this point.  This is no problem. If you are keen to be a part of this collaborative, fun and important PD, please talk to your Principal and let Kathryn or Micaela know of your interest. micaela@gladstone1.school.nz homesk@kuranui-college.school.nz .  We run the session from 3.30 to 5.30 at Hau Ariki marae.
