Pastoral Support

Kaiarataki (Deans), Ahorangi (Associate Deans) & Kaiarahi Tutors

There are four waka (houses) at 大秀视频. Each waka has a Kaiarataki (Dean) and an Ahorangi (Associate Dean). These teachers have been selected for their strength in providing support and guidance to students. They acquire a lot of knowledge and form close relationships with students and their families. Kaiarataki and Ahorangi oversee overall academic and pastoral support and should be contacted in the case of extended absence, concerns around well-being or if you need to let us know about notable personal circumstances.

Tutor Classes

Tutor classes are grouped horizontally for Year 9 鈥 11 students and vertically for Year 12 鈥 13. Year 9 tutor classes will have a number of Year 13 Peer Mentors associated with each class. Their role is to provide an extra layer of support between students and their Kaiarahi Tutor.

Our Kaiarataki, Ahorangi and Kaiarahi Tutors work together to encourage each and every student to dream big and aim high. We have excellent support from our experienced Senior Leadership Team: Mr Daniel Wilson, Ms Hannah Banks, Mr Trevor Olley, Ms Rowan Taigel, Mr Gavin Millar and Mr Bruno Watkins.

We communicate with parents and caregivers often. Teachers contact home about what their courses involve, how to succeed and what to focus on for assessments. Kaiarahi Tutors, Kaiarataki and Ahorangi make contact quickly if there are issues. Regular and personalised contact with home is very important to us.

P奴aha Te Tai

P奴aha Te Tai is our wh膩nau tutor class. Any student in Years 9-13 can elect to be part of P奴aha Te Tai which, in addition to usual tutor class activities, has a tikanga M膩ori focus. Students participate in various activities in the school and community. They are expected to either learn te reo M膩ori or Ng膩 Toi as a subject OR be an active and committed member of our school Kapa Haka.

膧konga & kaiako are involved in kaupapa M膩ori and te reo me ng膩 tikanga M膩ori are important, and implemented daily. Our daily routine consists of karakia, keemu M膩ori, waiata, haka, kaupapa M膩ori.

Restorative Practice (RP) and Restorative Justice at 大秀视频

As a Relationships Based Learning school, 大秀视频 recognizes that the key to a harmonious environment is being able to identify when and how relationships are harmed, and to adopt a community-wide approach to problem-solving.

At 大秀视频 we work in a restorative way; where we work WITH students, rather than 鈥渄o to鈥 them.

Restorative Practice is a relational approach to managing school life grounded in beliefs about equality, dignity, mana and the potential of all people.
