Te Waka Ako

Out new learning space is called Te Waka Ako or The Canoe of Learning. The opening ceremony was on Monday the 22nd May. We have now had two weeks in the building and there are many changes that we are getting use to. All the students have posted their thoughts about the move in an activity using de Bono's Thinking Hats. Check out their blogs. You can find these on the right hand side column of this blog.
Mr Riceman and the Manukau Class have a great blogpost about the event, with a great movie and explanation. Check out their blog site.

I think it is great that you guys have gotten a new class called Te Waka Ako because the Canoe of Learning is a very creative name for a classroom.
