Demonstrate commitment to promoting the well-being of all ākonga.
At our school we are lucky enough to be a part of the Star Path programme which includes students being involved in the Academic Counselling programme. Three times a year the school is closed It’s a great opportunity to meet with our students’whanau and for the students to lead the conversation. My Year 9 form students led the parent,student,teacher conference PST and they did so confidently having practiced in class a couple of times. Students established learning goals but on reflection they could have been developed further and this is something I want to focus on for 2017 by supporting students’self assessment to help raise their self-efficacy and confidence in themselves.

Since 2014 our school has also been involved in the Kia Eke Panuku programme. To me Kia Eke Panuku is first and foremost about relationships. I understand how important having a good relationship with your students and their whanau is to students’engagement and their success.
