Student Action Teams started in Term 2 in many of the schools from our Pupuke Kāhui Ako (Community of Learning).
Students, with guidance from their teacher leaders, are working towards implementing actions chosen by them to strengthen areas of need within their school/ our community. Many of the in-school teams are using a human-centred design process to ensure that the action they implement is purposeful and user-focused.
Teams are starting with empathising and defining – phases of the process in which they develop empathy with their users and unpack and define their community challenge/action. The photos above are a snapshot of Westlake Girls, Wairau Intermediate and Milford Primary working on a range of activities which will help them frame up potential ideas for their actions.
