Sharing some of the great practice in our kura

I'm excited to announce that we've just had three videos published by the Ministry of Education highlighting some of the exciting developments in our school. Here are the first three of five videos. Late last year (...not quite sure how we managed to fit this in, but we did!) a film crew from Core Education came in on contract from the Ministry of Education to interview a number of students and staff on issues relating to elearning, community engagement and modern approaches to teaching and learning. This is really exciting and is great exposure for our kura!
