Share stories about ALL students

Share stories about ALL students

Consider how your school can share its journey towards becoming a more inclusive learning community.

Consider how to share:

  • illustrated success stories about ALL students
  • student, parent, family, and teacher perspectives on diversity
  • the school's vision and the steps you are taking towards becoming a more inclusive community
  • teacher stories about their own evolving inclusive practice
  • stories in all the languages of the school community
  • digital text, print, and video versions of stories, providing parents and whānau a range of access options that work best for them.
