Naku te rourou nau te rourou ka ora ai te iwi.
This whakatauki talks to community, to collaboration and a strengths-based approach. It acknowledges that everybody has something to offer, a piece of the puzzle, and by working together we can all flourish.
I am proud to be part of a community that recognizes the strengths of collaboration and partnerships and am excited about the opportunities and possibilities for learning and learners in Taupō . I am passionate about engaging learners and whānau in partnerships with schools to plan for the unique needs of every learner. It continues to be a privilege to work with amazing teachers and learners across the many diverse schools in the Kāhui Ako. I look forward to developing a community approach to education that is responsive, innovative and learning focused.
