Kia Ora Parents, Whanau Tamariki and Kaiako


Once again, a huge thank you for your continuous support and help in making our E-learning interactive, interesting, stress-free and smooth for all of us.


Hope our Tamariki, Parents, Whanau and Kaiako enjoyed the interactive session of The Three Little Pigs today which was presented by Lan, Isabelle's mum. Tamariki were engrossed in listening to the story as they were familiar with it and also the cut outs were of a good size which helped the children to concentrate during this on-line virtual session.


A special thank you to Touma and Yasuko (Mum) who volunteered to read a story from the book chosen by Touma. The story was entertaining and Touma read it with confidence with mums support. Kai pai tamariki ma!!!


It is interesting to look at children's smiling faces, full of enthusiasm and waiting anxiously to participate in these sessions. We try our best to give each tamariki time to talk and participate.


With this new technology adapted by PLC Team towards on-line learning, children are developing the dispositions of curiosity, taking an interest, being involved and expressing their view points with confidence. As well as they have coped well with the changes in their learning during this COVID-19 lock-down and have responded well. Kai pai!!


Kaiako in PLC are pivotal in the development of tailored these distance learning programs based on existing goals in the child’s individual plan, as well as providing support to whānau to manage this at home.
