Since the inception of the Kahui Ako the schools in our community (Elim Junior School, Elim Christian College, ourselves, Our Lady Star of the Sea, St Marks Catholic Primary School, Sancta Maria Catholic Primary School, Sancta Maria College) have been working together to create a Christ centred community of learning.

We are excited to have five Early Childhood Centres come onboard and join our South East Christian Kāhui Ako.

We are a community united in our faith in Jesus Christ, valuing each person in our community as being made in the image and likeness of God. Jesus is at the heart of all our schools and we recognise God’s love in every aspect of our lives. We want our students to look to the future with hope and have an inner sense of knowing they are capable of being who they are. We are a community that cherishes, encourages and nurtures each and every child to strengthen their capabilities for life now and in the future.
We are a community that will work together to design rich learning opportunities and experiences that will challenge and grow our students’ capabilities and understandings. Our aspirations are that students will know who they are, what they value, where they fit in, question knowledge claims and look beyond by thinking critically, creatively and compassionately.
“You are not a team because you work together. You are a team because you trust, respect and care for each other.” Vahla Afshar
The Learning Framework encompasses a holistic approach to raising positive outcomes for all learners.
The diagram above captures the learning dimensions our Kāhui Ako have agreed to work on collaboratively. The links between the dimensions are illustrated below. This structure outlines, for our learning community, a framework to sharply focus on relevant learning for the future. It shows the flow of ideas through the Learning Framework to the identification of inquiries relevant to student learning and wellbeing.
