Welcome to Waitahuna School's updated Blog. We are excited to share some of the learning that we do everyday at our fantastic school. Included in our Blog are links that will help with supporting learning at home.

Teach and Tell - Seniors

This term we have introduced ‘Teach and Tell’ as a way of including the ‘Key Competency of Participating and Contributing’ within the senior room. This activity is simply a variation of a favourite for many younger students “Show and Tell”.  This practice provides students with an opportunity to share individual areas of expertise/interest and to develop their speaking and listening skills as well.We have been amazed by the variety of talent amongst our class and their ability to captivate us through their presentations. Below we have included some examples.
