Key Aspects of the Time Structure for the Day and Week:

Hui a Whanau:  these are most important for our rangâtahi where we;

·        Focus on the wellbeing of the ?whole? student (Ngâ Taiâtea PUTA Profile)

·        Reinforce the partnership between the students, Kaiârahi and the student?s parents

·        Set, monitor and adjust the students learning plan which is aligned to each students passions, needs, and aspirations (Rautaki Ako)

·        Rautaki Ako need to be carefully set out by each student and supported by their Kaiârahi to ensure that the students has an eye on their mid to long term goal and sees purpose in the Rautaki that they set and the classes that they have committed too.  The Rautaki Ako is central to the students seeing purpose in their learning 

·        Kaihautu Takere Whanau will set out timelines for whanau arahi to be guided by in what needs to be completed by our students.  The Pouarahi Reanga will be the key person to ensure that Kaiârahi and their students complete what is required.

·        Will practice our tikanga O Kawa (mihimihi, Karakia, mihi, korero akiaki, pânui)

·        Share the notices on KAMAR with our students each morning

all students in the whanau have a time where they are responsible to lead the hui whanau (Year 9 ? 13).

Hui a Kura (School Assemblies):  where we come together as a whole Wharekura (school) to;

·        reinforce our tikanga O Kawa together as a kura

·        senior students have the opportunity to lead the kura

·        encourage and celebrate the attitudes and achievements of our students

·        ensure that all of the teachers and students are of one mind in regards to key messages and requirements

·        pânui any events that are coming up

·        share a positive, inspirational, uplifting messages and stories

·        the hui a kura on Monday aims to celebrate our kaupapa and set the scene for the week

Hui a Reangâ (Year Level Meetings)  this is an opportunity when a reanga (year level) gets to focus on their own unique context where they will;

·        reinforce our tikanga o kawa together as a reangâ

·        students in the reanga have the responsibility to lead the hui whanau

·        encourage and celebrate the attitudes and achievements of the students in the year level

·        ensure that all of the teachers and students have clarity regarding key messages and requirements

·        pânui any events that are coming up

share a positive, inspirational, uplifting message.

Length of Classes:  Some students, staff and subject areas prefer longer classes (eg longer than 60 minutes) because they can go deeper into the learning, they can get equipment, set up activities, travel to places and still have a length of time to get through some valuable learning.  Other students, teachers and subjects prefer shorter classes.  Therefore we have a mix of both, 80 minute classes and 55-60 minute classes.

Wa Whakataa (Interval):  The first morning break at 10.25am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday is 15 minutes.  The lunch break is 30 minutes. 

Wa Tina (Lunchtime):  The Wa Tina on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday is at 12pm for 30 minutes.

Wa Tina on Wednesday:  Wedensday are different because every students has 6 shorter classes during this day.  On Wednesdays there are two 30 minute lunchtimes.  One at 10.45am and one at 1.10pm.

Wa Kokiri Kaupapa (Self-Management Time):  The last break in the afternoon on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday is Self Management Time and is 45 minutes long.  This is a time for the Taiatea whanau to complete work, have practices, participate in Kahui activities (tuakana/teina), attend meetings or rest and relax.  This time will also hopefully allow more students to participate in sports teams and cultural groups and will lessen the need for those who do not live in Hamilton to attend practices after school.
