100% HEATHCOTE APPLIANCES FUN RUN SPONSORS FOR 2013
UPDATE ON MANAIA TE WIATA
Manaia has continued to make excellent progress at the Henderson Rehabilitation Centre. His family has now been told that if all continues to go well Manaia will be discharged next Friday 22 November so that he can continue his healing processes at home. A recent big development has been that x-rays have shown that Manaia's spine has healed itself so that he is now out of the neck brace that he was wearing continuously previously. He has also been coming home for the weekend. So everyone is very pleased with his progress, which is much better at this stage than was ever expected.
FROM THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
NETWORK FOR LEARNING
Morrinsville College has been chosen to be an initial school for this exciting development because we have a strong history of being innovative in the delivery or our curriculum and because our information technology network is already well established so that we can be hooked up to an unlimited ultrafast broadband connection right away.
There will be a N4L (Network For Learning) portal which will be the foundation of an online community that will link teachers, students, school leaders and providers in a safe and collaborative environment, with very good firewalls. All schools throughout the country will progressively be connected via this secure network, which will offer high levels of service quality and support.
The N4L will provide opportunities for significant changes in the delivery of learning programmes. In particular, interactive inquiry-based learning using personal learning devices will increasingly become regular practice, supported by online learning resources. New teaching strategies will be developed which have the huge potential to drive accelerated thinking and to develop creative and innovative capabilities in students, thereby promoting greater student engagement, achievement and better preparing students for our technology-filled world.
It is also expected that other services will progressively be provided to schools by the N4L, including the possibilities of bulk purchase of resources which schools will be able to obtain at reduced prices.
