Welcome to Waiouru School!
Here at Waiouru School we believe that a sense of identity is very important for our students to settle in and become a successful part of our learning community. So not only are we proud to be WAIOURU we are also proud of our classrooms. We like to name our classrooms at the start of the year to reflect our students’ ever evolving classroom identity. I am pleased to introduce our classes of 2018.
Thunder Lions (Reception) with Rita Pridgeon
Manahau (Year One to Three) with Stacey Buchanan
Manahau are a group of lively Year 2-3 students…..11 boys and 6 girls! We chose the name Manahau as a way of saying we are a happy class. Our class is a play-based learning class which means we learn through a mixture of free play, playful activities and more traditional approaches to learning. Our teacher, Stacey, works with us either individually or in small groups on reading, writing and maths concepts. We also do some collaborative learning with Thundercats and Rita who are right next door.
We love visitors so if you’re ever in school and want to see what we’re up to pop in.
