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!!
