"Engagement increases when school leaders have vision and are committed to working in partnership with the parents and whānau of all students." (tki.org.nz)
Whānau / Family engagement is extremely important to us at Te Kura o Manunui. Working together as a team, we will empower our tamariki to reach their highest personal potential. Together we will provide high-quality programmes which will set our tamariki up for success.
Each term we have two school wide whānau/family hui. These hui (meetings) are around sharing ideas and contributing to discussions to help positively shape the way we do things for our tamariki at Te Kura o Manunui / Brookfield School.
We communicate these hui in several ways: paper notices, various school Facebook pages, school newsletters, texts to parents, whānau and caregivers, Seesaw and face to face.
Since Covid-19 schools all around Aotearoa / New Zealand have changed the way of working with whānau. Our school is determined to bring our whānau back into the school. We are looking at re-establishing groups within the kura.
If you are interested in starting up or being a part of any of the following groups in our kura please email the office.
