Mairehau High School – Increasing student agency and authentic learning

At first glance Mairehau High School’s Megalicious Merry Market appeared to be just another fundraising fair involving a few keen students. However, on taking time to talk to students and teachers, it was in fact the Term 4 exhibition event for all Year 9 and 10 students as part of their junior school Flexible Learning Time. The market is one of many collaborative inquiries the students and teachers have taken part in to increase learner agency and provide real learning opportunities.
