This year our Taranaki Inquiry focus was to improve our knowledge and skills in formal and informal assessment with our Complex needs ākonga and use this knowledge to support whanau and the educational team.
Our team Te Tiriti Activating Strategic Goal had a strong focus on ‘Me titiro whakamuri, kia kōkiri whakamua – Look to the past to move forward. This involved listening to iwi share their stories and visiting sites relevant to the historical landscape during the period of the Taranaki wars.
To celebrate the end of the year, we had a Christmas Party for BLENNZ whānau at our VRC. The weather was perfect, and families enjoyed games on the grass followed by pizza and dessert. Father Christmas visited on a tractor with a sack full of presents.
