2012 Term 1 Week 3 - Meeting of the Minds

Another great week with our fabulous students!

We have been developing our tikaranga, 'weaving the right path' for our learning, behaviour and social interactions. One of the ways we do this is through our 'meeting of the minds' on Friday morning. Our students all take part and are collaborating to create our 'right path'. This is a powerful way to hear student voice within an authentic context and teachers and students all contribute discussion points, ideas, solutions and further questions. These issues are discussed and mutual agreement reached on how we will develop our tikaranga together.

At this stage the process is led by teachers and our students are gaining confidence with the process and are using it in small groups. Our aim is to have this process student led in the near future and judging by the depth of thinking and reasoning students are engaging in within the process, it wont be too long before they are leading our meetings!
