Kowhai (Years 0-2)

Whangia ka tupuka puawai.

That which is nurtured, blossoms and grows.

 

Welcome to the Kowhai Syndicate.  We have four classrooms of children in our learning family ranging in ages from 5 to 8 years of age.

Our learning programmes ensure that our children start school with a continued love of learning and a solid foundation of life skills (eg: self-management, collaboration, communication, critical thinking …etc),  literacy and numeracy, and a growing understanding of the wider curriculum.

In our syndicate, we value the role of learning through Purposeful Play – see information below for our 2020 update.

Our Kowhai Syndicate Team 2020 is

  • Mrs Gaylene Hansen  (Kowhai Leader)  in Room 5 (Years 1 and 2)
  • Mrs Kirsten Matthews in Room 4 (Reception Room for Year 0/1)
  • Mrs Kath McRae will be teaching Thursdays in Room 4 and Fridays in Room 5.
  • Ms. Dorreen Mackenzie in Room 1 (Year 2)
