At BLENNZ Taranaki this year, a group of RTVs have focused their inquiry topic around tactile graphics and early braille skills. This also included a trip to the Palmerston North VRC to observe their Dot 3 club and to spend time with Trish Bishop sharing her knowledge of tactile graphics and early braille pedagogy.
Another highlight of the year was a small group of whānau and ākonga making connections together with trips to the zoo and coffee and cake at the VRC.
A recent highlight was a transition day for a group of learners transitioning to secondary school. The focus was on learning how to use technology effectively to access learning in a secondary school environment. This was followed by an afternoon of tennis skills with a Parafed Taranaki sport development advisor.
