2021 Class Structure

Updated: Nov 6

It's hard to believe it is that time of year again! On Tuesday night we held a parent info evening to share our class structures and teachers for next year. We know that this is of particular interest to all our families and for some can be a challenging topic.


Thanks to those of you who came along, it was good to talk through how this process works and reassure you that a great deal of time, thought and staff consultation goes into these decisions.



Notes:

1) With all our hubs and classes we have aimed for a degree of consistency for the children in terms of teaching staff. For example:

  • Abbie in Korimako will have a number of Y4 & 5 children who will be familiar with her from Harakeke. She has also taught in this physical space for a number of years previously.

  • Similarly Alex in Rimu will also have a number of children who will know her from Harakeke & Rimurimu

  • Alishah will be a familiar face in Pātangatanga

  • Sally, Lizzie & Karli will be familiar faces in VP


2) Single cell classes vs Hubs.

We aim to have collaborative learning across all our composite classes regardless of whether the class is a hub or a single cell. Most of our buildings are designed for flexible use, however there are still a few learning spaces that are not, hence the reason Kākahi is single cell. Kākahi will still operate collaboratively with other hubs in the same way as the larger hubs.
