School Support

Supporting schools to make the learning magic happen

REAP is funded through the Ministry of Education to work alongside primary and secondary schools

in Marlborough and Kaikoura, collaborating with educators for the purpose of creating learning

success. To achieve this we support students, educators, parents and whole communities to create

solutions based on their needs. In order to be as responsive as possible, there is a strong focus on

building relationships and supporting wellbeing. 

We provide support in a variety of ways including:

  • Support for Provisionally Certificated Teachers and their mentors as a group or individually,

  • Assistance in developing strategic plans,

  • Leadership – mentoring and providing support for those in leadership roles,

  • Professional development support - either personally or through developing workshops,

  • Providing advice and strategies around supporting students and families through the

       transition between education sectors,

  • Being proactive in providing support to develop groups and networks to meeting needs in

       our learning community

  • Being involved in developing and supporting local initiatives,

  • And…anything else that fits within our brief!

Early Childhood Education


We work alongside all of our Early Childhood community in the Marlborough and Kaikōura areas. We endeavour to support children, whānau, and educators within our community to create solutions to enhance the journey of young children.

In order for us to be as responsive as possible, there is a strong focus on building relationships and wellbeing.

Some of the ways we can support this:

  • Providing a 'transition to school at school' programme - Haere Au Ki Te Kura

  • Professional development opportunities for Early Childhood Educators

  • Parent education opportunities

  • Facilitate and broker groups and networks

  • Support local initiatives

  • Support Early Childhood services with in-service professional development

       specific to their needs

  • Individual teacher mentoring

  • Support for playgroups in our region

We are here to help so just ask!!
