About me

I am Principal of Te Karaka Area School. We are a new school that has been in operation since the beginning of 2011, situated North West of Gisborne towards Opotiki. We have 230 tamariki ranging from Year 1 right through to Year 13.

As a school we are trying to do things differently than the more traditional approaches. We are constantly searching for ways to engage our learners in authentic learning- right through to our Year 13 students.

We are exploring ways of truly engaging Maori students ad 96% of our students are Maori.

  • Tessa Gray

    Kia ora Kayrn, great to 'see' you online, it's been a while! Thank you for joining the Central North | Leading Effective e-Learning group. It is envisioned that these groups will become a central hub for a community of like-minded educators - focused on growing e-learning leadership, to impact change for our priority learners.

    You might like to take a few moments to introduce yourself, tell us where you're from, share a photo or perhaps your mihi in this thread [/discussion/view/827581].

    You might also be interested in conversations about 'what makes an e-learning leader' [/discussion/view/835077]. We'd love to hear your views.

    These are great ways to establish and connect a community online, so we'd love to hear from you. Ngā mihi nui, Tess :-)

  • Enabling e-Learning

    Kia ora and welcome to ALL the e-Learning groups, Karyn!:-) Your experience and expertise will be valuable - and I hope our growing community can support your learning, too. You might also be keen to look at our weekly e-learning round-up [/pg/profile/Enabling.eLearning] :-) Look forward to working with you. Ngā mihi nui, nā Karen.
