OCoL: Ōtara Continuity of Learning comes to an end for 2019!

For the past two years, I have been co-ordinating OCoL: Ōtara Continuity of Learning with a desire to support early childhood educators and primary school teachers to talk about the transition to learning, to contextualise and surface challenges and opportunities specific to our Otara region. As we come to the end of our second year it is heartwarming to see that there is still a core group of people dedicated to meeting and learning from each other.

Together we are stronger!

Our November Hui will be the last one for 2019. Please bring a plate to share as we celebrate the year that was. If you would like to come to this session, please email naketa@kiamahira.co.nz. (Please invite other team members you think will be interested in hearing this presentation).

Learning in Nature
7th November
Wymondley Road School Library
3.45pm - 4.30pm

You are invited to hear a 45-minute presentation by Play and Learn teachers about the importance of learning in nature and the impact on oral language, brain development, mental wellness and creativity.

Play and Learn Education Programmes have been running for 20+ years in Otara and Papatoetoe. Their nature programmes are now nationwide. They will share their insights about their Nature programmes and share why nature is important for all learners.
OCoL (Ōtara Continuity of Learning) is an opportunity for early childhood teachers and new entrant teachers to come together to discuss issues relevant to our community. We established our group in May 2018, and have a core group of teachers who participate regularly. You can view notes from previous hui here.
