We have had conversations with over 400 children from the age of 9 years through to the age of 18 years old. We have been blown away by their honesty and enthusiasm to share ideas and opinions in the hope that we can all make a difference for our future learning and wellbeing. A highlight has been the insight from students and their messages to us. In particular, if they return in five years time, they are interested in seeing whether we will have acted on the things they told us. Each school has had a chance to explore what the students have said about their school in more detail in staff meetings led by their Kāhui Ako Across School Teachers.
