Weaving the Mat

I can't believe its October already!

We now have the culmination of our Welcome To School Research along with the combo of in and across schools Teacher Inquiries.
The Manaiakalani Hui is always an annual watershed of class observational data from WFRC and the Inquiries of our own gifted and dedicated teaching staff. Hard on the heels of this event comes the Manaiakalani Wananga where we get to hear back from the Manaiakalani Outreach clusters in the North, Auckland, Christchurch and the West Coast.

This produces a compelling collection of information which has prompted my thinking beyond the last past back in June.
As is frequent for me, I've collected the ideas together into a presentation which I've discussed with staff, providers, Trustees and other audiences.

This only serves to strengthen the determination to make Language Acquisition, Development, Sustaining and Transfer the main focus for Inquiry in 2018
