Education Outside the Classroom at Ko Taku Reo

by Ginny Neal

At Ko Taku Reo we know that learning does not only happen in the four walls of a classroom but also through the chance to have different learning opportunities offsite for our Enrolled School Students and Keep in Touch days for our Outreach students. We see these learning events as a very important part of our student's education.
