In late 2017 schools in the Ōtaki cluster agreed to join with the Manaiakalani out reach programme. We have signed a 3-year contract which runs from 2018-2021. We have Manaiakalani trained facilitators working alongside our staff in the 1:1 device classes, we have regular Principal/Trust/Manaiakalani hui. All of our staff are becoming conversant with the Manaiakalani pedagogy of LEARN-CREATE-SHARE.
The original Manaiakalani Cluster in East Auckland has achieved outstanding results with its students. All of whom come from decile 1 schools.
Hopefully over the next three years and beyond with the successful LEARN-CREATE-SHARE pedagogy ingrained in our philosophy and programmes, with the continued support of our community and whānau and the continuing hard work from our dedicated teaching staff we will begin to witness a similar positive impact.
