Kia ora koutou
Since April 2018, I have had the privilege of leading the Taupō Kāhui Ako. The impact of all 14 schools in our community working together for the common good of our young people can not be underestimated. The inclusion of all our Early Childhood Centres further strengthens our ability to make a positive change for our learners. I applaud all members of our Kāhui Ako for their level of collaboration, trust and transparency. Ultimately, I have realised during my time in the role that our journey is a marathon rather than a sprint. Long term and well considered planning is essential if we are to make a genuine difference to our learners.
