The Ākina Leader is attached a year level. Their focus is Academic Achievement.
In the junior years, this focus is on the transition to high school and establishing good academic behaviours.
At year 9, this will include ensuring students are equipped, connected and ready to learn whilst also introducing them to important study skills required at high school.
As students move into Year 10 the focus shifts to NCEA. Students will need to understand the qualification requirements, subject pathways, and information on endorsements.
Ākina leaders also help whānau to navigate the intricacies of this national qualification system and provide important information on how to best support your young person over the coming years.
Throughout Years 11-13, our Ākina Leaders work closely with students to ensure they are getting the very best results they can get. This involves the monitoring and tracking of data, regular meeting with key students and, where necessary, additional support.
If you have any questions or require any advice on anything academic – please reach out to your child’s Akina leaders.
