Owairaka Hapori (Year 6)

Hapori Leader:  Carly Kidd

Welcome to the Owairaka Hapori, we are a fantastic group of Year 6 e-learning students and our learning space is the Kea Block.  We are a collaborative learning space with a terrific teaching team, made up of Mrs Tracey Kuba, Mrs Christine Hansen and Mrs Carly Kidd.  

Mrs Kuba and Mrs Hansen are the Whanau teachers for the Kea 2 students and Mrs Kidd is the Whanau teacher for the Kea 1 students.  The whanau groups meet together each morning and afternoon, giving students the opportunity to have a smaller group to share and reflect on their learning with and have the guidance and mentoring from their whanau teacher.

This year our Inquiry focus is based around ‘Our Changing World’, this will incorporate Science, Social Science, Visual Art and Technology.

We also have a range of fantastic specialist programmes to offer our students in 2016: Chinese, Robotics, Science and Tech, PE and Music, all our students will have weekly P.E sessions and fortnightly sessions with the other specialist teachers to continue to develop their skills in these areas.

All the senior students will be participating in several EOTC activities in Term 1, in place of a senior camp this year. The first one will be in Week 5… a sleepover at Kelly Tarltons underwater world and all of our students are super excited about this trip!

We have an awesome year ahead of us and we are all really looking forward to all the exciting things this year has to offer!
