Raumati Beach School chose an innovative approach to the community consultation phase of their curriculum development by holding a Vision Expo.
Published September 2010
Recently, Raumati Beach School on the Kapiti Coast, near Wellington, chose an innovative approach to the community consultation phase of their curriculum development by holding a Vision Expo.
Students and teachers created a ‘learning street’, and invited parents to visit (one of two sessions) after school or in the evening to stroll amongst colourful displays and interactive cross-curricula activities related to the school vision.
Senior students were on hand to talk about their learning and how this relates to the qualities of the school vision. They encouraged families to provide feedback during their visit.
Teachers built a shared understanding of what is important to them about Raumati Beach School, using a facilitated process, on teacher only day. Guided by research, teachers discussed and identified the concepts and qualities their students will need to be confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners.
The school vision identifies a set of five qualities that were brought to life and shared with the community at the Vision Expo. These vision qualities encompass curiosity, involvement, resilience, communication and respect, and have been aligned to the key competencies in the following way:
The school vision is currently being developed in consultation with staff, students, BOT, parents, and the wider community to ensure all views are considered. Students and teachers have worked together to develop a clear understanding of the qualities within the school vision:
We want our qualities to be understood and easy to remember to ensure they are used in their everyday lives, both at school and in the wider community.
There were a wide variety of displays at the school's Vision Expo.
Room Two captured the way in which a junior class was using 'curiosity' to find out about measurement.
Room Twenty Two used their artwork, inspired by artist Paul Klee, to show their understanding about communicating a range of feelings.
