What's happening at Ratapiko 2022?

In the term we continue our exploration of Mātauranga Māori, the land of voyages by sharing and presenting our learning using a range of digital tools.

We will be creating visual displays using our coding techniques to create digital representations of the voyages our ancestors made.

We are excited to be working alongside Donna Davis from Sharp Kinane to develop our digital fluency in this.

Also we will be making iMovies to share the 5 principles of being an Enviroschool with our whānau and community for our whānau evening in week 6.

What's on this year?

Working towards our Green Gold Award.

The tamariki will continue to embed our current practises of sustainable garden work, predator control, recycling and environmental clean-ups. We'll start our new projects of improving the health of the stream close to school and community work.

Our goal is to continue reflecting and strengthening our partnerships with all stakeholders in the community as we now work towards our Green Gold Award.
