Our Kāhui Ako

The South East Christian Learning Community nurtures a faith based education across South and Eastern schools and provides a strong pathway of achievement for our learners. Forward in faith we will work collaboratively together, sharing our ideas, best practice and our inquiries to ensure relevant outcomes for our students futures. We are building on pre-existing relationships formed through moderation practices, professional learning and the Eastern Learning Network to engage our communities and strengthen partnerships.

Since the conception of the Kāhui Ako (2016) the schools in our community have been working together to create a Christ centred Kāhui Ako.

We are committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and honour the principles of partnership, participation and protection within our multicultural community. With five primary schools and two full colleges (Decile 5 -10), our South-East Christian Kāhui Ako motto “Forward in Faith Together” shows that our Faith and Values underpin all that we do. Our schools will work together to provide seamless high quality education from primary to secondary. Our intention will enable opportunities for young people in our community to learn in new and different ways ensuring future success for all. Relational trust underpins our collaborative working relationship. High expectations are integral to our learning community.

Forward in Faith Together
