This newsletter was shared with you in Term 1 but as the first date is coming up – I wanted to reshare it with you.
Teacher Only Days 2022
Right across Aotearoa, the Ministry of Education has granted schools four Teacher only days in 2022 for Teacher Professional Learning and Development. This newsletter gives you a “heads up” on the dates that Raglan Area School has allocated for this purpose within the permitted timeframes. They are
- Wednesday 18 May
- Wednesday 24 August
- Friday 25th November
- Monday 28th November
On these dates, the school will be closed onsite. Our students will have access to online learning via the Kura Teina and Kura Tuakana portals that they have had access to already this year.
Professional Learning Development Context
For teachers of our Years 9-13 students these days are set aside to support the implementation of changes to NCEA, and wider strengthening of curriculum, progress and achievement practices.
For teachers of our Years 0-8 students these days are set aside to refresh and deepen their knowledge and practice around the local curriculum and to strengthen their understanding of the use of assessment tools for learning and teaching.
As always, if you have any queries regarding this newsletter, please feel free to contact the school by phoning 07 8258140.
