Breakout Groups

Cultural Sustainability

Jimmy Heta (AST) & Rawini Ngamo (Poutama Pounamu)

Our classrooms are more diverse than ever before. Most schools within our Kaahui Ako are on a journey of looking at ways in which we teach. Let us explore and discuss other ways in which we can improve our own teacher pedagogy.

Waikato Tainui - Education

Waikato Tainui Education Team, Richard Crawford & Ngahuia Nuri (AST)

Did you know that there was a Waikato- Tainui education strategy? This workshop will unpack the main aspects of Ko te Mana Matauranga and show how it is linked to Whakatupuranga 2050. We will discuss this plan and possible strategies through the lens of a Waikato Tainui Educational team member, Te Pae Here Principal, and a Te Pae Here across school teacher. What can we do as a Kaahui Ako, a school, and a teacher to accelerate the realisation of the goals of Ko te Mana Matauranga.


Taakaro-Ora Team & Kiran Gibbard (AST)

Taakaro-ora is a project focused on promoting Hauora / total well-being through a 3 year partnership with Sport NZ and Sport Waikato. It focuses on acknowledging the needs of students, staff and whaanau with meaningful, individualised and equitable programs of support. Importance is placed on raising awareness of Hauora through the Whare Tapa Whaa Model (Mason Durie), ensuring each of the four dimensions are equally accommodated for.

Collaborative Inquiry

Ande Ford (Clarity Education) & Mel Neumann (AST)

Do you ever wonder how how teachers at other schools undertake the teaching as inquiry process? Perhaps you would just like to share some thoughts on your own inquiry, make connections with others and collaborate to strengthen your inquiry? Utilising multiple perspectives makes for fantastic trouble-shooting!

Middle Leadership Connections - Team Coaching

Kate Horton (AST)

Learning Enhancement Teachers

Becky Sommerville (AST)

This group is specifically for teachers who do not have a class of their own. If you teach Reading Recovery, ORS, TESOL, small literacy or numeracy groups or learners with additional needs, this group might be of interest to you. You will make connections, share resource and experiences and talk about professional learning opportunities.

Within school Transitions

Steve Trotter (In School Teacher - Endeavour School)

For our learners, transitions are not just a 'one off' occurrence when they join a new school. Transitions within a school happen whenever students move from one class to another and students need to make positive adjustments so that their wellbeing is maintained and their learning is logical and continuous.

Come along and share how transitions are happening in your school, bring your questions and connect with other teachers.
