WELCOME TO ROOM RURU
My name is Charlotte Higgs and I am the Hauora teacher of room Ruru. We are one of four year 7 & 8 classes that make up the Te Mahuri team for 2022.
In Ruru class and across team Te Mahuri we are focused on student agency and allowing students to take ownership and responsibility for their own learning. Student agency is crucial for being a lifelong learner, which is what I wish for every student to be. We are lucky enough to be sharing our Ruru class space with Miss Peach and Ruru 2, where we will work collaboratively and have a range of learning areas where students can work depending on the task they are given.
As Hauora classes are the main point of call for each student, we also have core learning workshops. These core learning workshops allow students to work with a range of teachers and students. With a priority to ensure all students' learning styles are catered for. I also look forward to having inter-class challenges with the other year 7 & 8 Hauora classes, a little friendly competition!
Turaki has a great, expanding team of staff, students and Whanau which I feel very privileged to be a part of again for my third year. I look forward to meeting you all and am always happy to hear from you, so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
