Strength from a common purpose

Christchurch’s Catholic Community of Learning is making good progress in its quest to strengthen connections and integrate best practice across the board.

The shift to working together as a Community of Learning is well underway in the Christchurch Catholic Community of Learning.

Secretary for education Iona Holsted and local director of education Coralanne Child visited Catholic Cathedral College in August to meet with school leaders from the Christchurch Catholic Community of Learning.

This Community of Learning was formed at the end of 2014 and is made up of 15 schools from across the education pathway, serving nearly 5,000 children and young people.

The visit began with a mihi whakatau led by the students of Catholic Cathedral College, followed by a chance to meet with the principals and board chairs of Christchurch Catholic Community of Learning.

The Community’s lead principal, and principal of Catholic Cathedral College Tony Shaw spoke about the Community’s success in accelerating student achievement year-on-year by focusing on the individual needs of learners.
