'Transformational' Simon Moriarty, principal of Te Ahi Kaikōmako, Rolleston school promotes the new E Tū Tāngata toolkit as transformational in the way the school approaches wellbeing and relationships. 'E Tū Tāngata has given the school values new meaning and purpose'.
E Tū Tangata is developed to encourage personal reflection, group work and community contribution by focusing on three core principles:
• You have value
• We succeed together
• Others matter
Using online guided conversations, provided on the E Tū Tāngata website, schools access tools to develop these principles and apply them into practice.

Celebrating Pride in every school | Whakanuia te uenuku ki ia kura
We’re excited to launch InsideOUT’s first annual National Schools Pride Week campaign, with a range of activities that schools, rainbow diversity groups, students and staff can get involved with in their school!
We hope that by creating opportunities to celebrate and affirm rainbow identities through this campaign we can help reduce the experiences of bullying and distress many of our rainbow rangatahi face, and give these young people an increased sense of belonging in their school communities.
