Grow Waitaha was a multi–year project designed to support schools in post-earthquake greater Christchurch through citywide educational transformation. This case study of Grow Waitaha offers reflections on what has been learned, and recommendations to a wide audience of government agencies, funders, providers, communities and the wider education sector who are seeking to develop approaches to build capacity at a system level.
This prototype document presents evidence-based communication initiatives to contribute to community discussion about the changing face of our schools.
This is a developing guide. Grow Waitaha invites your feedback to inform this. Feel free to provide that here: https://bit.ly/2Nhyyev
Many schools in Aotearoa are undergoing significant change as their teaching and learning programmes evolve to meet the needs of current and future learners. This includes responding to the increasing role of technology as both a tool and a medium for teaching and learning, and an ongoing shift towards spaces and systems that support and encourage collaborative teaching. This guide supports Boards of trustees to provide strategic leadership for their schools to manage significant and ongoing change.
