Whānau time

Our kaupapa | purpose in our Hauora Curriculum focuses on supporting our students in a more holistic and in-depth way to empower them to be connected, collaborative, community-minded citizens inspired to soar.

In Whānau time we recognise that every student needs a strong sense of belonging and has an adult Whānau teacher who will be a champion for your student’s learning success. They will know your student’s strengths and work in partnership with your child and with you to support their learning journey. We believe learning and wellbeing are interlinked. Our aim is that students will set goals around their learning, and by working towards these goals they will ultimately improve their wellbeing.

Every Wednesday we have an extended Whānau time where students have peer mentoring opportunities through the STARs programme at year 9. In Years 10-13 learning is centred around Te Whare Tapa Whā and how students can strengthen each dimension of their hauora and effectively manage self, build resilience and apply our values of Whanaungatana, Manaakitanga and Kotahitanga.
