Te Kāhui Ako O Pupuke
There are nine schools and a number of Early Childhood Centres in our Kāhui Ako Community of Learning. We are located near the beautiful Lake Pupuke, hence our name, the Te Kāhui Ako O Pupuke stems from the Māori verb, pukea, which means to well up, rise or to increase in volume. Lake Pupuke is often referred to as a heart-shaped lake.
Our vision is to extend, develop and connect our work as a community to ensure that our young people are; engaged, connected to their community, to the North Shore, to New Zealand and to the world. We want them to develop the competencies and vision to extend those connections throughout their lives. Our vision is New Zealand’s vision; we want our young people to be confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learners.
The opportunity to collaborate as Kāhui Ako provides us with a platform to build on our existing success and focus on areas that can make us stronger. We are committed to extending the academic success of our young people and addressing the needs of individual ākonga and specific communities within our Kāhui Ako
The shared identified achievement challenges of Te Kāhui Ako o Pupuke are:
Wellbeing – for a happy young person is confident, connected and engaged
Key competencies – that will enable our young people to further develop the skills and competencies that strengthen their relationship building and resilience in order to achieve their own form of excellence in their learning.
Community engagement because we know that we all need to be connected to each other if we are to help young people become connected with themselves, with their country, and with each other.
