Kia ora whanau,

My name is Buffy Turner and I am the team leader of Team Te Pihinga. Te Pihinga is made up of  Year 4, 5, and 6 learners and our classes are Kiwi, Kea, Whio.


Our Hauora class, Kiwi class, is made up of year 4, 5 and 6 students.  In Kiwi class, learning is about taking the reins from the teacher and for students to be responsible for their learning outcomes and progress.  Student agency, partnerships and being the driver of their own learning are important themes in our class.  


Everyone in Kiwi is a leader.  Caring for our classroom, school environment and other members of our school is important to us as well. All students take the lead in their own learning to reach their potential in all areas of school life.


In Te Pihinga team, we work together to support our learners to be the best they can be and we look forward to you being a part of our learning journey.

Louise Turner

Year 4/5/6 Teacher
