SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Wednesday March 7 2018 7 Your Local Views Tai Tapu’s new principal ‘finding the right balance’ Tai Tapu School principal John Kane writes about his new role I WAS appointed to the position of principal at Tai Tapu School at the beginning of this year. Prior to this I was principal at Star of the Sea School in Sumner. My career in education began 22 years ago and I have taught in remote Aboriginal missions in the Australian outback, private preparatory schools in central London and for the last 10 years here in Christchurch. It has been wonderful teaching in different countries and at both ends of the educational spectrum. I reside in Sumner with my wife, Michelle and four-year-old daughter Isla. The one constant in education is change. It’s incredible to see how education has changed with modern technology and 21st-century teaching and learning practices. That being said a lot has remained the same and so it should. For me as a school principal it is about finding the right balance between modern teaching practices and fundamental teaching practices that have been around for decades. Schools should be a reflection of our changing society. We cannot expect to have a 1980s view of the world and then teach with that mindset. The world is changing by the minute and as educators we need to do our best to equip our children with the necessary skills, knowledge and values to enable them to make a worthwhile contribution to society in the future. More than anything else I want our kids to be thoughtful and kind citizens. I am very honoured to be the Tai Tapu School principal. The school has a wonderful reputation in educational circles and the school has been completely redesigned and built to accommodate 21st-century teaching and learning. In my humble opinion the learning environment has little impact on learning. It can certainly assist and facilitate things such as technology but it is the quality of the teachers in each learning environment which will have the greatest impact on learning. I’m very proud to be the leader of a wonderfully creative, innovative and experienced teaching team and this is backed by a very supportive parent community. $ 1,000to be won in each store south island wide* Watties For Baby 120g Single Can ANY 5 FOR $ 5 49 Treasures Nappies or Nappy Pants 12-26s (excludes bulk) $ 7 99 ea NEW SEASON Feijoas Loose Product of New Zealand $ 8 99 kg Fresh NZ Quality Mark Lamb Leg Roast $ 12 99 kg Fresh NZ Chicken Thigh Cutlets $ 10 99 kg Continental Cup a Soup 2-4 Pack (excludes Sensations) ANY 3 FOR $ 5 49 Value Cheese 1kg Edam or Colby $ 9 99 ea Cadbury Creme Eggs 4 Pack $ 4 79 ea Cadbury Novelty Bar Single 30-60g (excludes Luxury Flake) 99 c ea Specials available South Island only from Monday 5th March until Sunday 11th March 2018 or while stocks last.
