Manaiakalani schools have been participating and contributing to a cluster inquiry throughout Term 1, focusing on the health of
our local waterways. Each school has designed a programme of learning in response to their learners and local environment.
Throughout the term we have been sharing our learning and connecting with each other online, via our blogs.
Our young people appreciate feedback via their blogs. Check out Te Taiao o Tāmaki blogging
and access our schools' sites to connect further with their blogs.
