Class Treaty For Room 10!

Did you know that the Treaty of Waitangi was signed on the 6th of February 1840?  We worked out that was ages ago.... we think that was 166 years ago... are we right?

We decided that we would incorporate the principles of the treaty into our class treaty, alongside our STAR values.  You can find out more about what these are by clicking on this link.

We really like our treaty.  

What is your's like?  

We would love you to send us a photo or video telling us about your treaty.

Collaboration and Innovation.....

Collaboration and innovation was the name of the game in Room 10 this week.  Children worked with their peers collaboratively to discuss and then share their ideas with the class on what would be good values for our class to abide by.  

The success criteria revolved around incorporating the principles from the Treaty of Waitangi with the Rangikura STAR values.

Treaty of Waitangi:

  • Partnership
  • Participation
  • Protection


  • Supporting Each Other
  • Tell the Truth
  • Achieving Our Goals
  • Respect (self, others, environment)
  • Self Responsibility

As you can see in the picture, the children are really looking deeply into where they can find connections to the principles from the Treaty of Waitangi and the school STAR values.  

Along the way the children are also extending their vocabulary and collaboration skills with others.  We hope to have it finished by the end of next week.  You are most welcome to come and visit us in Room 10 to see what we decided on.  We love having visitors!

Room 10 would love to hear what you think, so please feel free to leave a comment below this posting and we will respond to you.

Thank you.
