Glenholme School Newsletter
Term 2 - Week 6, 9th June 2022
Kia ora koutou,
On Friday last week we had the pleasure to host three workshops for our Rotorua Central Kāhui Ako Teacher Only Day here at Glenholme School. Our visitors, who all work at our Kāhui Ako schools, were very impressed with both the classroom environments and the quality of students' work which they could see on the walls and in books. The staff who presented the workshops were really proud of our teachers and tamariki at Glenholme School.
The keynote speaker who started the day was Dr Melinda Webber from Auckland University, who spoke about her research project, Kia tū rangatira ai: Learning, succeeding, and thriving in education. Our school took part in this research during 2019 which collected whānau, teacher and student voice. It was interesting to hear the overall results from the 102 schools which took part.
These were the questions that were asked during the research project.
What motivates students to engage and persist at school?
What are their attitudes towards school?
What job do they want to do in the future?
How do teachers and whānau make a positive difference to their learning?
What role does culture play in their motivation to succeed?
Who are their role models and what do they tell us about what success means to them?
Dr Melinda Webber’s research started in 2018 and goes until 2023.
The Teacher Only Day was a wonderful day of learning for all our staff members who attended.
