Grow Waitaha aims to support schools to achieve their vision for education in their communities by enabling them to lead from within. The initiative recognises that huge expertise exists in the region, and harnesses that expertise by connecting schools up with others to allow for sharing and collaboration. The goal is to assist schools to achieve pedagogical change in a meaningful and manageable way, with a network of support.
One way we can enable this is by allowing our educators, parents, communities and learners see and hear what is happening across Canterbury and beyond. This section does just that — it shares stories, videos and images of new or updated buildings and spaces, and shows us how these spaces are being activated for our learners via innovative teaching methods.
