Our Community


A Learning Partnership

We believe that families have a vital role to play in the educational directions for their children. The learning that takes place at school is only part of all learning that happens during a child’s life and parents and caregivers need to work together with educational staff so that school life matches the child’s life.

Community of Learning - CoL

Oaklynn is privileged to be part of a Community of Learning - this is a group of local schools working together to raise student achievement.  Our CoL is called Kōtuitui and is a collaborative relationship between twelve local schools.  

Morag Hutchinson (principal of Green Bay High School), is the lead principal of this exciting initiative and has commented that

The three in-school teachers at Oaklynn are Gina Wright (literacy), Louise Dore (bi-cultural awareness), and Carol Gilson (data collection and interpretation).  Click here to be directed to the Kōtuitui website to read more about these specific inquiries.
