An Innovative School Takes on KiVa
Te Awa school, in Hawkes bay, is a KiVa school. They have been selected as an Air New Zealand sponsored school which means they are able to collect airpoints, donated by anyone wishing to support them, to support their project of information gathering around bullying prevention.
The airpoints will be used for travel to Finland where they will further investigate KiVa. They plan to do this by observing KiVa in action and by speaking with parents, principals, teachers and, of course, the students themselves. All of this will give Te Awa school first hand knowledge from those who have been implementing Kiva for a number of years and who will have their own stories and successes to share.
On return the school would seek ways to share what they have learnt with other New Zealand KiVa schools and to begin building an on-going supportive relationship with those schools.
You can donate air points by visiting Te Awa school at the following website:
