2021 - KAITIAKITANGA
This year the mahi we undertake at Bellevue School is embodied in Kaitiakitanga or Guardianship.
Our school curriculum document https://www.bellevue-newlands.school.nz/6173/pages/1215-bellevue-school-pathway intends for our students to be learners that also embrace being Kaitiaki (guardians) of themselves, others and their school. This includes being guardians of their culture, te reo Māori, tikanga, traditions, their whakapapa, their learning and their actions/behaviour, the environment, and local resources which also includes people.
Kaitiakitanga means guardianship and protection. It is a way of being. It is a way of managing the environment, based on the Māori world view. A kaitiaki is a guardian. This can be a person or group that cares for an area such as a lake or forest.
