Te Matauru Primary opened at around the same time as the COVID-19 pandemic emerged, which meant our planning for international opportunities for our learners was placed on hold.
As the global situation changes, we expect to be able to offer wider experiences for our learners and our community. Some of these initiatives may include
Accreditation as signatories to International students.
Sister school relationships.
Student trip opportunities.
Teacher exchange/ study.
Class buddy programmes.
In 2020 we made some initial links with the school network in Chengdu province in China. Our senior students took part in Zoom lessons with a class and our Principal presented to an educational leaders conference. These initiatives are the start of an ongoing relationship.
