Learning Partnership Day
Term 1 2023 starts with a Learning Partnership Day, allowing you to meet one-on-one with your child's teacher.
The purpose of this hui is for you to talk about your child so that your child’s teacher has a better understanding of who they are and can design learning based on this information, e.g their interests, strengths, needs, passions, how they best learn, their life beyond school and any family matters that we need to be aware of.
It is also a great opportunity for you to develop an all-important partnership with your child's teacher by being on the same page right from day one of the new school year.

You can book a time to meet with your child’s class teacher by:
