Our Learning

Where our students Learn, Create and Share.

Ara Tū Whakatā Gilberthorpe School is separated into three different learning hubs.  Te Ara Whakatau is where our New Entrants to Year 2 students work.  Te Ara Takitini is our middle school with Years 3 – 5. Te Ara Angitu is a space with Years 5 – 6 learners.

Below you can view blogs for each learning area.  Blogs are a platform used to share learning. You will also find links to hub Google Sites which is where students can access their learning resources and tasks. 

Te Ara Whakatau

All of our New Entrants to Year 2 work in a collaborative space we call Te Ara Whakatau.  Children have a home room teacher and are taught and looked after by a team of four teachers and one learning assistant.
