Rural School, Global Outlook
Turaki, mai i te Wainui-a-rua, horahia ki te ao whānui
WELCOME TO ROOM RURU
My name is Charlotte Higgs and I am the Hauora teacher in room Ruru. We are one of three year 7 & 8 classes that make up the Te Mahuri team for 2023.
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 every student to be. Te Mahuri work together collaboratively and have a range of learning areas where students can work depending on the task they are given.
Our 7&8 students have many opportunities throughout the year to show leadership, learn a range of languages, and are exposed to many other important areas of learning like financial literacy and careers. 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. I look forward to meeting you all and am always happy to hear from you, so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
