CONNECTION

We want all learners to feel a sense of belonging in our school and to our whanau. There is a very strong connection between whanau and learning. Our Year 9 and 10 learners primarily learn in whanau-based groupings, with the majority of their learning leaders also being from the same whanau.

CONFIDENCE

Alfriston College celebrates the achievements of our learners in many ways. Whanau have celebration assemblies each term to acknowledge the accomplishments of their learners in the four dimensions of: Academic,Community,Culture, Sport

COMPETENCE

Alfriston College runs 90 minute learning periods. This means that most learners have Whanau-based Learning Advisory (in Hapu with an Amokura) and three classes per day. 90 minute lessons allow for more in depth and uninterrupted learning to occur.

CHARACTER

Each of the five Whānau provides an effective environment for learning and growth, social interaction, leadership opportunities and mutual support while also maintaining a unique culture of its own through its colours, mottos, flags and traditions.

EXERCISE YOUR KAITIAKITANGA – COMPOSTING INTIATIVE - ONEPŌPOPO

This semester the Year 10 Te Oranga Maori (10TOM) ICI class has been learning about Kaitiakitanga. Learners have explored the impact of climate change and have taken action by demonstrating their kaitiakitanga. 10TOM learners have implemented a pilot composting initiative called Onepōpopo (compost).

Every break for the rest of this term, AC learners are encouraged to compost their kai scraps into the green compost bin set up by the whare. The bin will be monitored by 10TOM learners and emptied everyday into the food digesters in the greenhouse by KTK. The compost will then be used to feed our maara kai.

The 10TOM learners involved are Kowhai, Jorja, Kohineora, Gelaeya, Caroline and Adrian.

Manaakitia tō tōtou whenua. Kia kaha tātou and support this awesome kaupapa.
