Citizenship at Hautapu School

We were thrilled to spend time at Hautapu School recently. Our visit focused on engaging with students across various year levels to instill valuable lessons about community, responsibility, and safety.

Years 3 to 6: Understanding Local Knowledge and Needs We began our visit by engaging with students from Years 3 to 6. The primary aim was to help them understand the importance of knowing their address and local area. We equipped the students with knowledge, skills, and experiences to understand how people make choices to meet their needs and wants. Additionally, we discussed how time and change affect people's lives. The students participated enthusiastically, showing keen interest in learning about their local community and how it impacts their daily lives.

Years 7 and 8: Fostering Responsibility and Community Action Next, we interacted with the Year 7 and 8 students. The focus for these students was on specifying individual responsibilities and taking collective action for the care and safety of others within their school and the wider community. They learned to identify the benefits of knowing their neighbours and suggested possible communal events that could bring their immediate neighbourhood together, describing the benefits of such events.

Furthermore, the students identified situations that might require them to step up and take action to safeguard or help people in their neighbourhood. They discussed important character traits that contribute to upholding the rights, responsibilities, and laws of their neighbourhood community. The discussions were insightful and demonstrated the students' understanding of their roles in creating a safe and supportive community environment.

Overall, our visit to Hautapu School was an enriching experience for both the students and us. The students' enthusiasm and willingness to learn were truly inspiring, and we are confident that they are well on their way to becoming responsible and active members of their community.
