PTC:10 work effectively within the bicultural context of Aotearoa New Zealand
Kaitiaki is a group of loyal group of Pasifika and Maori parent’s who meet once a month to discuss how they can support the school. I have been a member since I started working at St Joseph’s in 2014 and what the group has achieved each year has gone from strength to strength.
This year Kaitiaki’s main role will be about raising the achievement of our Pasifika and Maori children. The fundraising events that Kaitiaki have previously supported will be run by FOSS (Friend’s of St Joseph’s) a fundraising group of parents. I have joined FOSS this year as a teacher and parent and hope to build the links between Kaitiaki and FOSS.
Where to next:
In our next Kaitiaki meeting in March I will be sharing the PEP (Pasifika Education Plan) with the group, we will look at the school student voice survey, set goals for 2017 that sitting alongside our PEP.
St Joseph’s School sold 116 tickets to Moana at the end of December 2016. It was a wonderful way to end the year and get out whanau together and enjoy this awesome film.
