At Āpiti school we base our Āpiti Māori programme on the NZC and the needs of our students.
In our learning through our MASAM framework in 2018 which was initially started in 2016 we made an action plan. We identified our current capacity and knowledge to move forward.
At Āpiti School we seek to authentically implement learning through meaningful contexts.
Our key focus themes are:
Theme 1 Practice in the classroom
Theme 2 Effective Māori cultural learning, pedagogy and curriculum for all learners
Theme 1 Respect for all perspectives/world views.
Theme 2 Whanaungatanga / Whānau engagement with parents, whanau, hapu, learner teacher
Theme 1 Local stories / Place based learning
Theme 2 Te Reo Māori, identity and culture
Theme 1 Values - hospitality, care integrity mana
Theme 2 Our School environment
Theme 1 Student agency and student voice
Theme 2 Whānau voice
The Action plan is our MASAM self review framework.
