2017 PD: Connecting With Manaiakalani

This year I will be working as a CoL Teacher within my school, and as a part of this role I spent today at Day 1 of the Manaiakalani Cluster Orientation.  It was a great day collaborating with staff from across the cluster, including those who are knew to our cluster this year.  We spent the day hearing from Dorothy Burt about Who, What, How, and Where of Manaiakalani.

It was so amazing to be reminded about the backbone of what drives Manaiakalani to do the amazing things we are blessed to do to serve our community and the learners within it.  My favourite part of the day was the simple reminder that Manaiakalani is about the people...not the computers.  It is about making a difference in the lives of our students and their whanau by enabling them to become 'confident, connected, life-long learners'.
