Empowering ākonga to be connected, collaborative, community-minded citizens

Hapori and Check & Connect are founded on the principles of Whanaungatanga, Ako, Manaakitanga and Tangata Whenuatanga. This hour and a half across the week is designed to foster the holistic development of learners to empower them to be connected, collaborative, community-minded citizens at a local, national and global level. Through Hapori, learners are supported to reach personal goals, holistically grow and to realise their potential through:

  • Relationships
  • Communication
  • Interpersonal Skills
  • Goal setting
  • Pathways
  • Hauora
  • Citizenship

The Hapori Teacher is the significant adult in the student’s school life who supports, tracks and monitors the student’s academic progress and well-being. It is expected that the Hapori Teacher develops a strong, positive relationship with ākonga and their parents/whānau.
