In other words, the school-wide plan is essentially an instrument to enable the goals of the school to be achieved, especially the goals of student achievement. Read more here.
In Ngā Mana Kākano o te Wairepo we run a programme called Tama Tū Tama Ora for our senior boys which focuses on the development and well-being of our tama. This year we have run weekly mau rākau sessions with a focus on improving the engagement, self-esteem and achievement of our tama.
This video is about our taiaha wānanga held at Whakatū Marae in July 2015. The boys stayed the night at Whakatū marae and helped with ALL the mahi, they learnt haka, karakia and tikanga associated with mau rākau and developed the various kaupapa in our Graduate Profile including Manaakitanga, Whanaungatanga, Rangatiratanga, Whakapapa, Ekea te Taumata & Te Reo me ōna Tikanga Māori.
Victory Primary School is planning to hold a taiaha wānanga twice a year. This video is from our very first wānanga and we are planning to hold our next wānanga over two nights in term four where whānau will be invited to come and see what the boys have learnt throughout the year.
