Our Vision for our students of the future is to be K.E.E.N Learners. To be Knowledgeable Learners, Enthusiastic Learners, Striving for Excellence and Nurturing. This KEEN attitude has paid off and is reflected in our National Standard scores above 86% in reading, writing and Maths. There is more to education than academic achievement alone which is why the nurturing environment stresses social skills training, treating each children as an individual and empowering them to be imaginative and creative. The environment is one where children are encouraged to say “I Can” instead of “But”.
21st century learning means embracing technology, our Year 5 & 6 classrooms have 1 to 1 netbooks while every other classroom has Multipoint Computer stations and iPads in their classrooms, giving students access to technology but not at the expense of their learning. Reading, writing and maths are still the focus of learning. The true beauty of Te Awa School is that we know our children and their families, that’s what makes Te Awa School the wonderful place it is. If you want to know more please come and see us, visit the classrooms and see what makes us so special.
My door is always open to parents and the community, please contact the school for any further information.
