2014 SUPREME AWARD

2014 TE TOHU NUI

Otumoetai Intermediate School

Otumoetai Intermediate School took a close look at student achievement and engagement, and found they were not making a difference in the lives of every student.

Te Kura Waenga O Otumoetai

E ono tau ki mua ka āta wetewetea e tēnei kura ngā whakatutukitanga a ngā ākonga, ā, ka kitea iho kāore tonu e whai hua ana ngā mahi ā-kura ki tēnā, ki tēnā ākonga. Nā reira ka whakatakotoria tētahi huarahi e whakatau ai i ngā take whakawhiti mā ngā ara e whā o te whakapainga ake, kia: tipu te tangata hei kaiako tautōhito, whakapai ake i te taha ki te poari whakahaere, kaha ake te rangona o te reo o te ākonga, kia whai wāhi mai ngā mātua, ngā whānau me te hapori.

What the judges said

E Ai Ki Ngā Kaiwhakawā


"Otumoetai Intermediate has a planned approach to change the lives of every student in the two years they attend. Their highly effective systems for teacher learning drive up achievement. Their students develop the competencies required to be truly in charge of their own learning."

"Ko tā te Kura Waenga o Otūmoetai he huarahi i āta whakaritea e rerekē ai te āhua o ngā ākonga katoa i roto i ngā tau e rua ki te kura nei. He pūnaha tino whai hua ā rātou hei whakapiki i te mōhiotanga o ngā kaiako mā reira e eke panuku ai ngā ākonga. Mō ngā ākonga, ka tipu ngā āheinga kia riro mā rātou anō ā rātou akoranga e ārahi."
