Value of the Term

Willingness to question, reflect, investigate and create. This means wanting to find out more.

Our Whakatauki for this term is...

Pihi kau ake te whakaaro pai, hauhake tonu iho.

When a good thought springs to mind, make sure it is harvested.

A good idea is like a seed. It needs planting, caring for and then it will be ready to harvest.

Share it
Reflect- think about it some more
Wonder- ask yourself and others questions

                                                                                                        clown in class.
