Welcome to Piwakawaka Whanau
The Middle School is a time of transition to independent learning. Our children are encouraged to think, ask questions and explore possibilities at this stage, understanding that they can be teachers as well as learners. We use Thinker’s Keys at this level, which helps our children develop their creativity and thinking skills.
We encourage parents, with children in Middle School to help them take responsibility for their learning in class and at home. Enthuse curiosity by helping them ask questions and to create projects for themselves. Ask them to explain what they are learning to you, including their next steps and long-term goals.
Along with extending our children’s learning, the Middle Team cares about them reaching their potential in all areas. The School Values, teamwork and acceptance of others are of equal importance to us because we want our children to grow up to be happy, healthy and positive members of Society.
