Kia Ora! Welcome to Rūma Toru, a group of curious, enthusiastic and unique Year 6 ākonga. In our space we value all of the things that make the ākonga unique. Our doors are always open. Please feel free to come and visit our learning space or get in touch via email if you would like to find out more about our programme.
I am privileged to lead the Y6 team alongside passionate and innovative Kaiako. I enjoy learning about individual strengths, talents and interests that ākonga bring to our kura. My aim is to provide learning opportunities enabling all ākonga to become confident and successful lifelong learners.
Georgia Thompson [email protected] I am beginning my teaching career at Kaurilands School this year. I am excited to face new challenges and work with all our fantastic tamariki. I have a passion for the arts and love spending time with my whānau. I am looking forward to finding my place in the Kaurilands community.
Welcome! In Rūma Whā we believe everyone contributes their own valuable skills and talents. In our space we try to make learning fun! We strive to inspire our tamariki to be creative, curious, risk-taking and engaged learners. We encourage our learners to collaborate with others, as well as to be responsible for themselves and proactive in their learning. Our tamariki belong to a Rōpū (Māori word for group) with their 2 teachers. This Rōpū is then part of an extended whānau called a hapū (extended family). We chose the word hāpū because we want to develop a shared identity and for the tamariki to feel like they are part of something special. " Me mahi tahi tātou mō te oranga o te katoa" - We should work together for the wellbeing of everyone!
I am so excited to be entering my third year at Kaurilands and furthering my journey in this energetic and inspiring community! I love to encourage children’s curiosity about the world around us and provide meaningful learning opportunities for them to connect with their wonderings.
I have been lucky enough to be a part of the Kaurilands whānau for 3 years now, it feels like home! I enjoy working and learning alongside the beautiful staff and tamariki in our community. I am an animal lover who enjoys spending time with my whānau outdoors all year round.
