Whare Tautoko is a learning support space that is woven throughout the fabric of our kura (school) and wider community. As well as having dedicated learning spaces, we also provide specific learning support within the mainstream classroom environment. Deliberate attention is given to identifying and addressing any barriers to learning. Here in the Whare Tautoko space, we embrace and acknowledge diversity and difference. We provide opportunities for rangatahi (young people) and their whaanau to participate in all meaningful aspects of their life at school. This inclusive educational environment gives hope that every learner will improve their sense of belonging and overall hauora (wellbeing). We believe that meaningful participation within kura occurs when rangatahi feel accepted, experience success, are visible members of society and have positive connections with their peers and teachers; we can all learn and participate together.
