  Whakatane Community of Learning – Information Sharing  

 

    Recent changes in the education sector have led to the establishment of Communities of Learning, where schools, early childhood and other educational institutes work together to improve educational outcomes for children within a community of learners.  

The Whakatane Community of Learners or Kahui Ako’ consists of the following schools; Apanui, Allandale, James Street, Nukuhou North, Ohope Beach, Paroa, St Joseph’s Whakatane, Trident, Whakatane High and Whakatane Intermediate; and also involves numerous early childhood centres  

The Whakatane Kahui Ako works with all member schools and organisations to ‘Enrich partnerships, grow capability and strengthen engagement for equitable outcomes and success for our community’.

In order that the Kahui Ako works from an evidence base, schools and organisations are sharing information, this includes attendance, student achievement and learning needs information.  Information shared is non-identifiable data and is used help determine patterns and trends across the community of learning in order to inform needs, supports, funding and possible professional development for schools.

 

 


GISBORNE INTERMEDIATE v WHAKATANE INTERMEDIATE

The Annual “ELITE SPORTS AND ACADEMIC EXCHANGE” with Gisborne Intermediate takes place this term in Week 9, on the 25th(Tuesday) and 26th(Wednesday) June. About 140 children from each school will take part in a variety of activities.

During the Exchange each team takes part in a “two match series”. One game is played on Wednesday afternoon, after the Powhiri, and then a return match takes place on Thursday morning. After the completion of the games, we have a code versus code tug-o-war competition which is a real highlight. Gisborne travels back on Thursday afternoon.

It is W.I.S.’s turn to be the host this year, so we welcome whanau to come along and watch the games over the two days. 

BREAKFAST CLUB Did you know that your child is welcome to attend our daily Breakfast Club?  Teacher Aide (Odessa) organises a free basic breakfast in Room 12 from 8.00am.  Also if anyone out there has spare fruit on their trees, we would love to receive it to add to the breakfasts. 

 

 

    PLEASE NOTE!

    If you shift house, change your phone number, email      address or caregiver details, please send a note to         he school office or phone us on 308 6480.  If you           want  someone other than a person listed on your         enrolment to pick up your child, please let the office       know as we need to be sure only authorised people       collect our students.
