At Springlands School we offer those children, who show appropriate behaviour and their work is completed, a wide range of exciting activities every Friday afternoon, from 1.30 – 2.30 pm. This is called Ka Hikitia. The activities range from mountain biking, craft work, cooking, sport opportunities and many more fun and exciting activities.
Our Ka Hikitia programme develops school-wide consistency in the delivery of building positive relationships and intelligent behaviours.
The programme focuses on one aspect of Springlands School vision, a term, building a positive school culture – Hauora through the weekly/daily teaching of Kahikitia themes.
The programme provides a structure for effective teaching, addressing the school – focus on high expectations of attitudes and behaviours, known as A1.
Through pro-active value teaching children are encouraged to set and strive to achieve A1 Quality goals and earn the right to attend a Ka Hikitia.
