If we pull the centre of the harakeke out, then we take away the native birds' nourishment and they won't thrive. Think about our ākonga.
If you read and write, you can succeed.
Writing with our dominant hand.

Show our learners that they ARE learners.
There are creative ways - if they know it is possible.
What makes you unique?
taha wairua - spiritual wellbeing
taha hinengaro - emotional wellbeing
taha whānau - cultural wellbeing
taha tinana - physical wellbeing
None of these can be at 0 as they will negatively weave.
It takes ONE teacher that CARES

- Creating an environment that looks after their wellbeing - spiritually, emotionally, physically
- connect them to who they are culturally - individually, family, culture
