Our teaching and learning
Our teaching and learning strategy, Te Ara Kōtihi, enables us to work together as a collective, with the learner at the centre of our organisation, and also helps us bring our values to life in everything we do.
Read more about our approach to teaching and learning below.
Te Ara Kōtihi – our strategy
Te Ara Kōtihi means ‘the pathway to success‘ and it’s an organisation-wide strategy that provides structure, principles and the high level goals to ensure we are all working as a collective.
The tohu depicted here was designed for us by Trish Francis, and the whakataukī she had in mind was:
Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou ka ora ai te iwi
With your food basket and my food basket we will thrive
This highlights the importance of having a shared purpose and making a contribution to ensure that we thrive as a collective.
Our learners – the centre of everything we do, as well as human potential, growth, relationships and conversations, all of which are unique to our organisation.

Our organisation – our teams, staff, teachers, structures, processes and delivery, which all exist to support our learners.

Our success – what we are striving for, which is all of us working as a collective, combining our skills and knowledge, to create value and better outcomes for all our learners.
