Kāhui Ako - July 2019

The initial posts within this site have focused on my sabbatical and the discoveries and experiences that provided. Now this site will shift and focus on my own professional development and also the journey of our Feilding Kāhui Ako.

The Feilding Kāhui Ako is gaining momentum. Whilst there has been widespread disillusionment with the processes and structures of Kāhui Ako the fundamental ethos underlying this initiative, collaboration, is both a desire and a necessity in education.

Last term we completed our review of the first year of the Kāhui Ako.

The progress of the Kāhui is steady presently. However, with the employment of our Across School Leads (ASLs) and also our Within School Leads (ASLs) has given us some real impetus. The future is looking bright and exciting.
