Preparation for Tekids Celebration

Today we had the children together to begin the planning for their end of year celebration where they will present to whanau and BoT's from our schools. The children worked collaboratively in groups, some with a mixture of children from different schools. A major focus is on them taking ownership for this event, which came from their voice and feedback last term relating to them wanting more input. They were focusing on several key competencies, in particular relating to others and thinking. Photos and their planning from today are on the tekids wiki.

Children worked fantastically together and this was commented on by all staff present. They are very excited about this upcoming event and are working together with independence and confidence. It is great to see and hear them coming up with creative ways of running their celebration. The teachers are guiding ideas only and will very much be in the back seat on the night.
