Kāhui Ako ki Orewa

Kāhui Ako ki Orewa

Kāhui Ako ki Orewa

Hibiscus Coast’s first Community of Learning, Kāhui Ako was launched in 2017 having been endorsed by the Ministry of Education. Kāhui Ako ki Orewa comprises of Silverdale School, Orewa Beach Primary School, Wainui School, Orewa College, Dairy Flat School, Orewa Primary School, Nukumea School and Ahutoetoe School.

A Kāhui Ako is a group of education and training providers (early learning, schools (kura), state integrated schools and post-secondary), representing the learning pathway of most children and young people, who work together to help students achieve their full potential.

Each Kāhui Ako sets shared goals or achievement challenges based on the particular needs of its children and young people. Once these have been endorsed by the Minister of Education, the Kāhui Ako works with students, their boards, parents, whānau, iwi and communities to achieve those challenges.

Kāhui Ako ki Orewa will see the schools work closely to achieve common achievement challenges. Teachers from all eight schools meet regularly to share common teaching practice and are working to develop clear learning pathways for all students.

Our four focus areas are:

  1. Te ao Māori – Ako and Leadership- Tikanga, Te reo, Cultural Responsiveness
  2. Hauora – Barrier Free Access – Learner Support, Well Being
  3. Future Ready – Future Focused – Collaborative Learning, Digital Curriculum
  4. 21st Century Learning – Ākonga at the Centre – New Zealand Curriculum, Pathways.
