Our School Korowai
Our School Has Many Programmes:
Transition to School
There is Junior Rumaki class at Malfroy School and a Middle/Senior class.
We have a lot of support for learning literacy at our school. We have Ngati Whakaue support and Reading Recovery support and PPP.
Harold and Bernie visit us every year so we can learn about ourselves, our bodies, our relationships and our health. We love this!
We go to Rotorua Aquatic Centre every year and learn how to swim. We do a water safety course that is important because we life in a place with 16 lakes.
Education out of the Classroom [EOTC]
We are Seniors and have Responsibilities
As Ambassadors we are involved in meeting and greeting visitors, helping with junior and middle school classes, assisting in the playground at break times, and representing our school.
Alexa and Ryan are Receoptionists. They get a welcome desk at the reception office of the school and are responsible for meeting and greeting visitors, answering the phone and taking messages. They also help the office staff with anything they need.
We have our own school blog where our teacher (she calls herself a 'facilitator' though) leaves instructions for us and where we showcase our learning outcomes. You can view this blog here.
One of the coolest things about an ICT Leader is that we get to explore many different Web 2.0 Tools and Apps that encourage us to think, collaborate, create and connect. It is AWESOME!
