Hibiscus Coast’s first Community of Learning, Kāhui Ako was launched in 2017 having been endorsed by the Ministry of Education. The Orewa Kāhui Ako comprises of Dairy Flat School, Orewa College, Orewa Primary School, Orewa North Primary School, Silverdale School and Wainui School.
The launch signifies a new era which will see the schools work closely to achieve common achievement challenges. Teachers from all six schools meet regularly to share common teaching practice and are working to develop clear learning pathways for all students.
To achieve our aspirations for student success in our Orewa Kahui Ako, teachers in each Kahui Ako school will have a focus on the Professional Learning Standard. We believe that the professional growth and development of teachers is the foundation on which student achievement rests.
We use inquiry, collaborative problem solving and professional learning to improve professional capability to impact on the learning and achievement of all learners. This allows us to:
Writing and Mathematics
Learner Support - Students with special needs
The Te Reo curriculum progressions are embedded into practice from ECE onwards. All teachers are supported within the Kahui Ako to build confidence and competence to achieve this.
