We are a team of Tu Rangatira who "Challenge ourselves to be the best we can be" by applying a Growth Mindset to authentic learning opportunities and experiences. We enjoy the challenges of collaborative inquiry based learning, unlocking out potential and most importantly having fun. Whanaungatanga is at the heart of our learning environment, nau mai haere mai.

Tēnā koutou katoa. You'll find me in Room 21 with the CHARMForce. We are a team of resilient, risk taking, creative and innovative thinkers.  We are life-long learners that strive for excellence and try our best in all learning opportunities.  In CHARMForce we understand that everyone matters, and to just do your best and forget the rest! Learning is a journey full of fun and adventures. Nau mai, hara mai whānau - come and join us and witness the CHARMForce in action!

Year 6 Teacher - Room 20

Kia Ora. It is a pleasure to be  teaching  the most CHARMing class of Year 6’s this year at Te Wharau School.  My passion is to be creative with our learning and stand alongside our fabulous tamariki.  In Room 20 we all aim to  have fun with our learning so we might sound a little loud at times.  In Room 20 we are all learners in and are continuing our Growth Mindset Journey.  Come in and see us and say hello.

Kiri Collier
Year 6 Teacher - Room 19

Kia ora koutou katoa.  My name is Kiri Collier and I am very excited to be part of a team that encourages tamariki to be their very best. My goal is to help them achieve this by encouraging and inspiring them through rich learning experiences that align with their strengths and interests. In Room 19, we encourage each other and recognise that everyone has an important part to play in our learning, including whanau. Our door is always open, so please feel free to join us and be a part of our amazing class.
