This year BLENNZ Northland have been running three curriculum days each term.
These consist of a Low Vision Group (primary and intermediate), Braille Club (primary) and a Braille Secondary Schools Group. Our learners are collaboratively deciding on their group names, so watch this space.
Our tamariki gather together with their Resource Teachers of Vision from all areas across Northland including Taipa, Kaitaia, Dargaville, Kaikohe, Kerikeri, Ngunguru and Whangarei.
These days are based on the New Zealand and Expanded Core Curricula and particularly focus on social skills, independent daily living skills and assistive technology.
Student voice is recorded and the groups identify their own goals and areas of focus.
The engagement, discussions, problem solving and friendships that are fostered make our expanded core curriculum days a termly highlight for our tamariki.
