Eskdale School

Piwakawaka is home to three different Enrichment Writing Groups three times a week. These sessions build on the teaching and learning that happens in the home rooms.  They allow students from different rooms to work together both individually and collaboratively on writing tasks designed to expand, enrich and enhance their writing.

Piwakawaka is also the base for Gifted and Talented Groups.  The group is identified on a term by term basis depending on the focus for the term.  It is a small group of students who have been identified as having certain learning characteristics that give them the potential to achieve outstanding performance within the focus area.  This group meets twice a week to work on a variety of projects that allow them to expand and develop their talents.


 Please see 'Learning Caves' for examples of what is happening in these groups.
