Learning Celebration Wednesday 12th April, 2017 

During Term 1, 2017 all Manaiakalani Schools will be participating in a cluster inquiry focusing on the health of local streams and pest eradication. Each school will be designing a programme of learning in response to their learners and local environment. 
During the term we will be sharing our learning and connecting with each other online and via our blogs. 
This will culminate in a learning celebration at Te Oro, where our young people will be presenting throughout the day for whānau and connecting with each other kanohi-ki-te-kanohi.
