A Community of Learning, or Kāhui Ako, is a group of education and training providers (early learning, schools, kura, and post-secondary) working together to help learners achieve their full potential. Our Kāhui Ako is made up of a team of leaders and teachers from four schools across the Peninsula - Stanmore Bay School, Gulf Harbour School, Whangaparaoa Primary and Whangaparaoa College. We also have two Early Childhood Education representatives that work with us - Wendy Simpson, Whangaparaoa Kindergarten and Micahela Pavis, ABC Manly, who represent 17 of the coast's ECE providers. Lisa White, Deputy Principal at Whangaparaoa College is the Leader of our Kāhui Ako.
Our achievement challenges (goals) are focussed on improvement in Writing, Mathematics and University Entrance.
We believe that a focus on three key drivers - hauora, effective teaching, community and transitions - will help us to achieve our goals.
