Digital Waitaha will be running a community evening on the 20th of March. The digital world is an amazing place full of knowledge and entertainment. However the digital world is can also be a dangerous place for our young people. Please come along to learn strategies and techniques to keep our young people safe in the digital world.
Handwriting has become somewhat of a lost art. We worked with Dr Helen Wall in 2022, and she explained the importance of neat, clear, and automaticity when writing. Check out the Korimako class' mahi!
One of our values at Carew Peel Forest School is Responsibility - we teach design and teach lessons that encourage our learners to be self-disiplined and a self-manager. Here the Piwakawaka class are learning to follow routines and stick with activities!
