Engagement is the foundation for success at Toru Fetū Kindergarten. This collaborative project has huge support from the Kindergarten Association, community, and families.

The group was committed to building the capacity of each Pacific group involved in the project with expert help brought in for support. The Kindergarten has created a community hub with integrated services for families. This is an outstanding model of engagement across nations.

 

The vision for Toru Fetū Kindergarten is to establish the Aoga, Akoga, and Punanga for the present and future generations of young people of Cook Island, Niue, and Tuvalu descent to learn in their own language and culture.

By establishing the Kindergarten and engaging children and families in high quality early childhood education, the goal was to support children and their identity as learners, knowing this would be foundational to their future educational journey. Capacity and capability building was essential to this process to uphold the shared vision of the Pasifika communities.

Services are provided by the Kindergarten which aim to address the barriers some Pasifika families face, to ensure the highest level of support is accessible to all.

Ko te tuitui tāngata te tūāpapa o te angitu mō Toru Fetū Kindergarten. Arā kē te nui o te tautoko mai i te Tōpūtanga Kindergarten, te hapori me ngā whānau mō tēnei kaupapa.

Kotahi tonu te whakaaro o tēnei rōpū ki te whakapiki te kaha o ia rōpū Pasifika i whai wāhi ki te kaupapa nei me ētahi mātanga i uru mai ki te tautoko. Kua whakaritea e te Kindergarten tētahi wāhi me ngā momo ratonga mō ngā whānau. Kātahi nei te tauira pai ko tēnei o te tuitui tāngata mō ngā iwi.

 

Ko te whakakitenga o Toru Fetū Kindergarten he whakatū Aoga, Akoga, Punanga hoki mō ngā tipuranga Kuki Airani, Niue, me Tuvalu o nāianei me āpōpō kia akona i roto i ō rātou ake reo, tikanga hoki.

Nā te whakatū kura kōhungahunga me te whakauru i ngā mokopuna me ngā whānau ki ngā whakaakoranga tino kounga, ko te whāinga ia he tautoko i ngā mokopuna me tō rātou tuakiri anō hei ākonga, i runga anō i te mōhio ka noho tēnei hei tūāpapa mō tō rātou ara ako ā muri ake nei.

Flaxmere College undertook a high level of engagement with their students, staff, parents, and whānau to improve student attendance and achievement.

Based on ‘The Flax Way’, coherence across the College has been enhanced with families and whānau fully involved.

The result has been significant improvements in NCEA results and education outcomes for their students.

 

Flaxmere set a focus on accelerating Māori student progress and achievement through creating educationally powerful connections with whānau and the wider community using Māori student and whānau voice, and has been able to develop a contextualised curriculum.

The College included pōwhiri within school and at local Mana Whenua Marae, guided by the local and school kaumatua and kuia. Iwi and Hapu partnerships are continually encouraged, with any concerns for the tamariki being addressed by the school.

Children at the College have become more confident, they are active learners and have built connections across the school community.

There has been a significant shift from disparities for Māori learners across all levels of; achievement, engagement, attendance and retention, through to equity of opportunities and outcomes.

Ka mutu, kua kitea ngā painga i roto i ngā huanga NCEA, huanga mātauranga hoki mō ā rātou ākonga.

I whai a Flaxmere College kia kaha ake te whakaanga ki ngā ākonga, ngā kaiako, ngā mātua me ngā whānau kia pai ake te taetae mai me ngā tutukitanga o ngā ākonga.

Ko ‘The Flax Way’ te kaupapa matua, ā, nā tēnei kaupapa i noho mārama ake ngā āhuatanga o te Kāreti nei ki ngā whānau.

 

He mea whakatakoto e te Kareti o Flaxmere ko te aronga māna ko te whakatere ake i te kauneke me ngā whakatutuki a ngā ākonga mā te whai hononga ako pakari ki te whānau me te hapori whānui, mā te whakarongo hoki ki te reo o te ākonga, o te whānau hoki, ka mutu kua oti mai tētahi marau hāngai, marau whaitake.

I whakaritea e te Kāreti he pōwhiri i roto i te kura, i te Marae o te Mana Whenua, ā, i riro nā ngā kaumātua me ngā kuia rātou i ārahi. He kaha tonu te whai i ngā hononga me te iwi me ngā hapū hoki, ā, ka whakatau ai ngā raru o ngā tamairiki i te kura.

Kua māia te tū o ngā ākonga i te Kāreti, kei te kuhu tonu rātou ki ngā ākoranga ā, kua whakarite hononga puta noa i te hapori kura.

Kei te tino kitea te nekehanga mai i ngā rerekētanga mō ngā ākonga Māori puta noa i ngā taumata mō te tutukitanga, te whakaanga, te taenga me te noho tonu ki te kura, tae atu ki te whakawhiwhi ōrite me ngā huanga ōrite.

Kāiti School wanted to see parents and whānau, and their community becoming an essential component in raising educational outcomes for their tamariki. The school also saw an opportunity to develop their children’s social conscience and aroha by collaborating with the local council, parents and whānau, and the local community on a range of initiatives.

The level of engagement was impressive, demonstrating commitment and transformative relationships with children and their parents, whānau, and community. This has resulted in students achieving success as learners, using opportunities that are localised and designed for them.

 

In collaboration with their whānau and wider community stakeholders, Kāiti School delivered a Connection and Collaboration Series to engage their students in learning. Each member of the Leadership Team was responsible for overseeing one Connection and Collaboration project, with the help of the wider community that would grow their tamariki.

Using a distributed model of leadership was essential to ensuring that the range of collaboration projects were given the leadership support that was required, to make them sustainable and to ensure successful outcomes. The leadership team developed a clear, co-ordinated approach to their projects and worked hard to build relationships with the wider community. These projects and their corresponding learner focus areas encouraged the students at Kāiti School to engage more, and has resulted in higher attendance levels, stronger cultural competencies, and students feeling better connected to their Kura and their community.

Ko te hiahia ia o Kāiti School me mātua whai wāhi mai ngā mātua, ngā whānau me te hapori ki ngā mahi hei whakapiki i ngā huanga ako o ā rātou tamariki. Ka kite tonu te kura i tētahi huarahi e tipu ai ngā whakaaro pāpori me te aroha o ngā tamariki me te mahitahi ki te kaunihera, ngā mātua, ngā whānau me te hapori i runga i ētahi kaupapa.

Papamoa Kindergarten undertook a brave journey using collaborative engagement with the teaching team, parents, whānau, neighbouring schools, the kindergarten association, and the children to develop four dispositional learning muscles. Using native animals to represent each muscle the kindergarten aimed to motivate learning with a strong focus on language.

With strong engagement of parents and the influence of the dispositions in the kindergarten and at home, children view themselves positively and are taking on broad abstract and complex ideas and using them appropriately.

 

Papamoa Kindergarten, through engagement and collaboration with their learning community, established an Assessment Whānau Group to develop and embed a bicultural teaching, learning, and assessment framework. This framework supports all tamariki in becoming 21st century life-long learners. Learners who through exercising their four Learning Muscles of Resilience, Resourcefulness, Reflectiveness and Reciprocity have clear ideas about their learner identity in different contexts over time.

Linking these Muscles to the traits of four native animals has really engaged the students in relating to and understanding some difficult dispositional concepts. The framework and associated language has led to improved and sustained outcomes for all children.

I kōkiritia e Papamoa Kindergarten tētahi ara mātātoa e mahitahi ai ngā kaiako, ngā mātua, ngā whānau, ngā kura pātata tonu mai me te whakahaere kura pūhou, me ngā tamariki ki te whakatipu i ngā uaua ako e whā. Mā te whakamahi i ngā manu māori hei tohu i tēnā, i tēnā uaua i whai te kura pūhou ki te whakahihiri i te ako me te aronga nui ki te reo.

Nā te kaha o ngā mātua ki te whai wāhi atu me te awenga o ngā akoranga i te kura pūhou me te kāinga, i rongo tonu ngā tamariki ngā painga mō rātou anō, ka mutu, kua aro ki ngā whakaaro waitara, whakaaro matatini hoki, me te mahi tika i aua whakaaro anō.

 

Nā te whakaanga me mahitahi ki tana hapori ako i whakatūria e Papamoa Kindergarten tētahi Rōpū Aromatawai hei whakatipu, hei whakaū hoki i tētahi anga ako, anga aromatawai kanorua. Ko tā tēnei anga he tautoko i ngā tamariki katoa kia tipu hei ākonga ako mutunga kore nō te rautau 21. Ka whakamahia e ngā ākonga ō rātou uaua ako e whā, arā, ko te Resilience, Resourcefulness, Reflectiveness me te Reciprocity, ā, i roto i te huringa o te wā ka noho mārama ai rātou ki tō rātou tuakiri ākonga i ngā horopaki rerekē.

Nā te hono i ēnei Uaua ki ngā āhuatanga o ngā kararehe māori i tino aronui ngā ākonga kia mārama ai rātou ki ētahi ariā hōhonu, ariā tuakiri.

This School identified a need to lift the number of students involved in agribusiness and developed a programme with communities and businesses across the country.

They demonstrated great tenacity and leadership, encouraging other schools to participate in the programme, resulting in a significant increase in the number of students studying agribusiness.

 

St Paul’s Collegiate School committed to meeting primary industry needs by promoting and growing talent, skills, and abilities of students to better prepare them for careers in agribusiness. An Advisory Group was established to oversee the collaboration with a number of outside businesses to devise a programme that meets the needs of the primary sector. To ensure that the programme also met the needs of all secondary schools in New Zealand, the Advisory Group brought together a range of schools as the Agribusiness Community of Learning (ACOL).

This leadership has enabled the building of strong relationships with other educational institutions, which has increased opportunities for student learning and student success.

Glenavon School used a distributed leadership model focussed on learning outcomes and engaged their community and students to develop a new vision for the school. The leadership model provides consistency and alignment with the leadership team taking responsibility for specific portfolios across the school.

This has resulted in improved academic achievement and shifts in students’ attitudes across the school.

 

Glenavon School set out to restructure the leadership of the school to be more targeted, accountable, and focused on specific portfolios that would shift learning outcomes. A group of enthusiastic staff wanted to be challenged and were dedicated to providing more than just quality teaching. They flattened their leadership model, moving away from a tiered approach to provide more consistency and alignment.

As a leadership team, Glenavon has been very intentional about cultivating a culture that empowers staff, and is about adjusting systems and school structures to allow staff to be challenged, motivated, and to reach their potential. They have seen shifts in achievement, attitudes, student agency, and student/community engagement as a result of empowering their staff to be leaders of their area and to have ownership of their portfolios.

I whakamahia e Glenalvon School tētahi tikanga whakawhiti aratakitanga e aro ana ki ngā huanga ako, ā, ka nohotahi rātou ko te hapori, ko ngā ākonga hoki ki te whakarite he whakakitenga hou mō te kura.

Flaxmere College developed a robust, sustainable distributed leadership model to improve outcomes for their students. The principal does not have a separate office, clearly demonstrating a devolved leadership in the College.

The devolution of leadership includes the students and the community having meaningful input into decisions.

The result has been improved involvement and outcomes for all students in the school.

Flaxmere College has sought to accelerate Māori student progress and achievement through creating educationally powerful connections with whānau and the wider community.

The College implemented deliberate leadership strategies including increasing staff duty by including teacher aids, and hiring Māori and Pasifika support staff as positive role models who also had the emotional and cultural competencies to build connections with the students.

The leadership team, in collaboration with teachers, students, whānau, and the wider community, agreed upon a new vision for the school. Every student was surveyed for their input and this data was collated to produce an agreed upon approach to learning.

Children at the College have become more confident, they are active learners and they have built connections across the school community.

This College is an excellent example of how education should be delivered for young Māori. An enormous shift in achievement has occurred through a flexible timetable that allows students to pursue varied courses, and the use of data to monitor the progress of each student so that programmes and teaching practice can be adjusted, and professional learning and development tailored to student needs.

Coherence across the College based on ‘The Flax Way’ vision is exceptional, with families and whānau fully involved.

Flaxmere College sought to accelerate Māori student progress and achievement through co-constructing shared teaching practices to ensure equity in student learning.

The College implemented new teaching strategies between the Leadership Team, teachers and students. Every student was surveyed for their input and this data was collated to produce an agreed upon approach to learning.

Whānau and community collaboration have become a huge focus for the school. Spaces were created for families, communities, and the school to work together.

Children at the College have become more confident, they are active learners and they have built connections across the school community.

Students now experience a highly inclusive environment that is responsive to their academic, social, and cultural aspirations.

De La Salle College’s science department increased the number of students in science. The school has engaged parents and whānau and collaborated across the school to increase the interest in this curriculum area.

The results have been impressive with an improvement in NCEA results and improvement in achievement results in the sciences.

With such a high percentage of Pasifika students, the Science Faculty at De La Salle has developed its own unique Pasifika Education Policy and has identified key practices’ that assist the students. Staff continually strive to provide a classroom environment where the student-teacher relationship is paramount, and where quality innovative teaching is a transformative force in the lives’ and futures of the young men at the College.

Teachers in the Science Faculty have been fully engaged in upskilling and gaining new knowledge, which has included regular attendance at science conferences, sharing professional development, and ongoing collaboration with outside agencies. Best practice, a continual review cycle and a willingness to adapt to the individual student has seen rich rewards for all involved.

Student engagement increased with a wider opportunity for learning experiences which are real world and culturally responsive. Whānau/Aiga are more informed and connected, and student attendance and participation has risen significantly.

I whakapikia e te tari pūtaiao o De La Salle College te tokomaha o ngā ākonga e ako ana i te pūtaiao. I nohotahi te kura me ngā mātua, ngā whānau hoki, ka mahitahi ai rātou puta noa i te kura kia ihiihi ake te hiahia ki wāhanga ako.

Inā kē ngā hua i puta, kua pai ake ngā huanga NCEA me ngā whakatutukitanga i roto i ngā momo pūtaiao katoa.

 

Inā kē te tokomaha o ōna ākonga ākonga Pasifika, nā tērā i whakaritea e te Manga Pūtaiao i De La Salle tōna ake Kaupapa Here Pasifika, ā, i tautohu hoki i ētahi tino tikanga hei āwhina i ngā ākonga. Kaha tonu te whai a ngā kaiako ki te whakarite taiao ko te hononga i waenga i te kaiako me te ākonga te mea nui, ko te whakaako auaha, whakaako kounga he tukanga whakaumu i te ao o ngā tamatāne o te Kāreti nei.

Kotahi tonu te whakaaro o ngā kaiako i te Manga Pūtaiao kia whakapiki i ō rātou pūkenga, mōhiotanga hoki, pērā i te haere ki ngā hui pūtaiao, te tuari akoranga ngaio, me te mahitahi tonu me ngā umanga ā-waho. Nā tō rātou kaha anō kia ū ki ngā tauira o te mahi tika, kia rite tonu te arotake i ā rātou mahi, me te hiahia kia hāngai te titiro ki te ākonga takitahi kua kitea ake ngā hua pai mō te katoa.

Nā te whai i ngā wheako tūturu, e rata mai ana ki te ahurea i piki ai te whakaanga a ngā ākonga. Ko ngā whānau me ngā aiga kua mātau ake, kua tūhono hoki, me te aha kua piki te taenga atu me te whai wāhi o ngā ākonga ki ngā mahi o te kura.

Hoon Hay School studied the research and pedagogy to develop a way of working with multi-levels of students to improve outcomes in maths.

They used inclusive practices, collaboration between children, and focused on problem-solving which resulted in achievement gains in maths in years five and six.

This is a well thought out process which is now being shared with other schools and practitioners. In addition, the school is looking at using the model in other domains.

Hoon Hay School introduced and extended, across the whole school, the use of a mixed-ability, problem solving approach which relies on productive mathematical dialogue, to ensure that each student has the opportunity to engage in worthwhile mathematical tasks.

The school wanted to ensure that Māori achieved success as Māori and were enjoying the same level of academic success in mathematics as the school-wide cohort.

The leadership team prioritised mathematics as the sole professional focus. The school has successfully raised student engagement and outcomes in mathematics across the school.

I wānangahia e Hoon Hay School ngā rangahau me ngā tikanga whakaako tamariki ki te whakatipu tikanga e mahi ai rātou me ngā akonga mai i ngā taumata maha kia pai ake ngā hua pāngarau.

I whakamahia ngā tikanga mahitahi i waenga i ngā tamariki, ā, ko te aronga ko te whakaoti rapanga nā tērā i pai ake ngā tutukitanga pāngarau a ngā ākonga tau rima, tau ono hoki.

He tukanga tēnei i āta wānangahia, ā, kua tuari kētia ki ētahi atu kura, kaiako hoki. Me te aha, kei te tirohia ētahi atu wāhanga ako e whakamahia ai tēnei tikanga hou.

 

I whakaritea e te Kura o Hoon Hay tētahi kaupapa puta noa i te kura e whakamahi ana i tētahi huarahi āheinga rerekē, huarahi whakaoti rapanga me tōna whakawhirinaki ki ngā whakawhiti kōrero whaihua ā-pangarau. Mā tēnei e whai wāhi ai ia ākonga ki ngā tūmahi pāngarau whaihua.

Ko tētahi atu hiahia o te kura nei he whai kia angitu ai ngā ākonga Māori hei Māori anō me te aha, e ōrite ana tō rātou angitu i te pāngarau ki tērā o te kura whānui.

I whakaritea e te rōpū kaiarataki kia noho ko te pāngarau anake te aronga mātāmua. Nā konei, i hiki ake ai te whakaanga a ngā ākonga me ngā huanga pāngarau puta noa i te kura.

With strong governance from the kindergarten association and members of the Pacific community, this kindergarten was established for the local Pacific communities to support Pacific languages and cultures, and to provide wrap around services.

As a result the capacity of each of the language groups has been strengthened, the number of trained teachers increased and support provided for professional learning and development of staff.

The vision for Toru Fetū Kindergarten is to establish the Aoga, Akoga, and Punanga for the present and future generations of young people of Cook Island, Niue, and Tuvalu descent to learn in their own language and culture.

By establishing the Kindergarten and engaging children and families in high quality early childhood education, the goal was to support children and their identity as learners, knowing this would be foundational to their future educational journey. Capacity and capability building was essential to this process to uphold the shared vision of the Pasifika communities.

Services are provided by the Kindergarten which aim to address the barriers some Pasifika families face, to ensure the highest level of support is accessible to all.

Nā te kaha o te kaitiakitanga mai i te whakahaere kura pūhou me ētahi o te hapori Pasifika, i whakatūria ai tēnei kura pūhou mō ngā hapori Pasifika hei hāpai ngā reo o ngā tāngata Pasifika me ngā tikanga hoki, me te whakarite i ngā momo ratonga hei tauawhi i a rātou.

John Paul College has established a strong learning support centre with an inclusive programme for the students involved. The centre provides wrap around services for students with additional learning needs. The centre and its inclusiveness has been life-changing for students and their parents and whānau.

Interviewing and tracking each student, involving an academic mentor, and developing a multi-cultural plan has led to positive connections and clear pathways for the students.

John Paul College and the Learning Support Centre set out to create an inclusive environment with a wrap-around service for all students. The College and the Centre wanted to raise achievement levels by engaging and connecting more with the students and their whānau, and by adapting teaching practices.

All students were encouraged to take ownership of the school. As a result, environmental projects were initiated. Students are now proud and enjoy spending time in their school grounds.

Staff made getting to know each student a priority, in order to create tailored learning pathways for each and every student. This resulted in a significant rise in student achievement levels across the school.

Kua whakatūria e John Paul College tētahi pokapū tautoko akoranga me tōna kaupapa e tuwhera ana ki ngā ākonga. Ko tā te pokapū nei he tauawhi i ngā ākonga whai matea ako kē. Nā tēnei pokapū me te tuwhera o tana kaupapa i tino panoni ai te oranga o ngā ākonga, ō rātou mātua, whānau hoki.

Te Kura implemented a student-centred approach to learning for at-risk learners on one site. They provided additional support and flexible, personalised learning to improve achievement for these students.

This included professional learning and development opportunities for the staff to ensure they understood the purpose of the programme and the unique needs of the student’s.

The result has been significant academic and well-being improvements and enhanced relationships between students, their whānau and their teachers.

 

Te Kura’s authentic learning approach is based on the international Big Picture Learning model. This approach explores learners’ interests and passions, supports them to experience real-life learning and sets goals for life beyond school. This forms the basis of their unique learning plan.

The Big Picture Pilot is based in locations across New Zealand. It was established to build on existing Te Kura practice, to provide better support and more personalised and flexible learning options for some of the school’s most at-risk learners. A strong relationship between Te Kura learning advisors, students and their whānau, all working together on the student’s programme of learning, is key to the success of the programme.

The fundamental outcome of the Pilots is that students have re-engaged in learning and have gone on to further success following the programme.

Koinei te pūtake o tā rātou mahere ako ahurei.
