Orientation

Welcome to Uru Mānuka,

We are excited to have you join us on our journey to accelerate student achievement and inspire futures.

In Uru Mānuka we thrive on working with innovation. An approach that may challenge what you think 'learning' is and what schools are for. We work collaboratively together, with lots of professional learning and support.

Since 2015, we have been a part of the Manaiakalani Outreach Programme. Our focus is on:

  • Future-focused pedagogy for teaching 21st century teachers and learners: Learn Create Share
  • Visible, accessible, rewindable learning that enables learners to be connected and empowered.
  • Greater student engagement in learning and accelerated achievement.
  • In-class facilitation support through the Cybersmart curriculum.
  • A funded programme researched externally by the Woolf Fisher Research Centre.
