Cobham School, Gisborne - A true Community School.
We had a fantastic training day with Cobham School on Saturday 26th August and for the first time, included whanau in the training. The School created a lovely space, put on a beautiful spread and we even took home a Hangi - specially prepared for the day. Nga mihi nui ki a koutou katoa, te whanau a Cobham School.
Here is feedback from Teresa Scott, Principal:

"Just for information sharing and an update. Our Mana Enhancement community approach training day was last Saturday. We had aunties, uncles, grandparents, BOT, RTLB, parents & teachers in attendance (20 in total). Feedback we have had so far includes:

"This is life changing."
"I can use this to help my whanau be stronger"
"I have seen the impact this makes and it is worth doing it for the kids"
"Every thing makes sense for me now. I have a better understanding of what I can do to help"
"I can use this as my behaviour management in the classroom."
"This will help me understand my students better"
"This day helped heal me."

Our teachers have already taken it into their classrooms and started to unpack the approach with their students. Students comments are so alive when it comes to talking about this. I have posted a few videos on our facebook page if you have time to check them out". Teresa Scott, Principal Cobham School.

Cobham's second training day is on Saturday 16th September. We can't wait!
