Involve me and I learn
Te ako o te Tui a Tamaoho
Our school is a Year 1-6 contributing school. Stage one development will accommodate 350 learners, and may take time to grow to this capcity, while stage two will increase the school’s roll to 550. Stage two will be implemented when required and may not be built for a number of years. This will keep the teacher to learner ratios low.
Tamaoho School will also include satellite teaching spaces for Parkside Special School and a Sensory Resource Centre for Blind and Low Vision Education Network New Zealand (BLENNZ) with a teaching space. The school will open for instruction at the beginning of Term 1, 2021.
Our vision, values, key skills, teaching approaches and learning area pathways have emerged through a community consultation process with our local community, Nga Hau e Wha Marae and Tamaoho Trust.We have also used critical educational research:
- New Zealand Curriculum
- The Local Curriculum
- OECD Future of Education and Skills 2030
- 7 Principles of Learning (OECD 2016)
- Sir Ken Robinson, Bring on the Learning Revolution (2019)
- Statement of Intent 2018 - 2023 MOE
All this information has been synthesised to shape the direction of our new school.
