'At all times we will endeavour'
Te Akonga o Whenuakite will endeavour for personal hauora and success
Welcome To Room 1
It is with great pleasure that I get to welcome you and your child to Room1 at Whenuakite School.
My name is Jan Collins and I feel very privileged to be able to start your child on their learning journey as a five-year-old at Whenuakite School. Exciting times being 5. So much to learn and so many new experiences for you and your child. I will endeavour to ensure the transition to school goes smoothly and is a WONDERFUL experience for all. (home & school working together)
Our class is all about having fun while we learn and we sure do this. We have a blend of play-based learning and a more structured literacy & numeracy programme catering for everyone’s needs. Children are nurtured to be the best they can be and encouraged to give everything a go, to become risk takers and in control of their learning.
We closely follow the Key Competencies to develop the “whole child” and to grow our students into independent life long learners with inquiring minds.
I believe in open communication and welcome your input and questions. I look forward to working with you and your child.
