Whanua involvement in the learning journey.


Sommerville school held an EXPO on Saturday 28th October , where we offered our families an opportunity to come along to school for an information day.
We had community organisations  run information sessions on relevant topics for our families included : Medical concerns, behaviour management , special needs funding etc.

We provided supervision and entertainment for their child ,while families/adults attended the information sessions. This was the fabulous idea of our Principal Diane Hankins. Our families are already asking about next year's Expo and offering ideas and suggestions for what they would like more information on.

I ran an hours session on how families can support the learning of their children at home.
My focus was to show families how they can get involved in fun, engaging ways that are enjoyable for everyone - adult and child.



Here is an example of some of the slides I presented.
Our parents are very keen to be involved in their child's learning, we just need to show them some ways of making it appropriate for their child in their home environment.
