Why Ako?

This programme has been designed to promote learning, well-being and the home/school relationship.

It is a highly responsive approach that uses mentoring and coaching techniques to meet the ongoing needs of students, enhance learning and support academic and personal excellence.

As part of our Ako programme we launched Tuakana-teina in 2021. This is a teaching and learning approach in which younger students learn from their big ‘sisters’ and vice versa.
