2019 Schools' Handbook - Growing Great Communities - REAP Wairarapa
Welcome to the 2019 REAP Wairarapa Schools’ Handbook

Our REAP’s Mission is to support the development of the communities in our region by providing
responsive learning opportunities that meet the diverse needs of our people.
REAP Wairarapa (Rural Education Activities Programme) provides access to lifelong learning
opportunities across a number of sectors, including early childhood, schools, and adult and
community education.

Our work is diverse and includes working to develop our people and communities by providing
practical support to organisations and initiatives that meet local needs.

There are thirteen REAPs whose work varies in each of the regions, and include a diverse range of
activities, working with all or some of the following government agencies: Ministry of Education,
Tertiary Education Commission, Land Transport, Te Puni Kokiri, Accident Compensation Commission,
Ministry of Social Development (including Strategies with Kids, Information for Parents – SKIP)

REAPs also work closely with local government, local trusts and community groups in their area.
Much of the work in REAPs is of a developmental nature. REAPs are specialists in promoting and
nurturing community change.

REAP House is also the home of a number of other organisations:
Literacy Wairarapa                 Adult Literacy Support
Wairarapa Road Safety Council      Road Safety programmes
YETE Wairarapa                     Youth Education, Training and Employment Partnership
Kings’ Chambers                    Lawyers

Spaces for Hire - REAP Wairarapa has many spaces for hire at including the old Castlepoint
School - Rangiwhakaoma Education Centre

About REAP Schools’ Programmes

Thank you for your ongoing support of REAP’s Schools’ Programmes. We are continually working
on the improvement of our Handbook, making it even better and more useful to schools as you
plan extension/enrichment and other activities for your students.

Our workshops/programmes are not intended to take the place of schools’ own programmes, or to
give a critique on where students may fit on a scale. Their purpose is to light the fire of enthusiasm
for a subject (or to fan existing flames), to broaden horizons and to stimulate thinking. They give an
opportunity for a student to be immersed with a small group of like-minds, and to work without
interruption while focused on the same topic.

We have included learning objectives and information to help you to select students – please read
these carefully and send the right students from the stated year groups. We encourage you to take
risks about the selection of children who may benefit from exposure to the workshop topic.
However we cannot accept students who are a ‘risk’ when it comes to behaviour – if you have any
doubts about how a student will behave then they are not the right student to send.

We believe the best way for students to share the learning they have done at REAP programmed
events with their school is for their teachers to talk to them about it, using the learning objectives
as a guide to questioning. We will email you on the last day of the course with the course
information and any handouts to enable you to have those conversations with your students when
they return to the classroom.

We will also email an online evaluation to you for students to complete and we encourage you to
undertake this exercise as soon as students return to school. The evaluation is an important part
of our work; not only does it assist us with future planning, it provides valuable feedback to ensure
our programmes are relevant and meeting needs of staff and students.

Please take the time to complete the evaluations to let us know what worked well and what didn’t
work so well. We welcome feedback good or bad.

NB: Places for programmes are limited, and we ask that you are thoughtful in the number of places
you request. Nominating a specific number of named students gives us an indication of your
commitment to the programme.

REAP will allocate places to each school and then request names if they have not already been
provided. Should substitution of one child for another be deemed better as the workshop
approaches, please ensure you advise REAP at least three working days before the class dates

Applications for further REAP Support 2019

REAP is charged with helping to raise student achievement and to reduce disparity. This includes
supporting raising achievement for Māori students and Tātaiako competencies.

REAP invites all schools to apply for one application for further support. The programme can run
anytime during the year but needs to be completed before the end of 2019.

The application is in addition to all programmes / workshops / events listed in this handbook.

Whilst this support is primarily aimed at small schools, any school looking for support in this area
should make an application.

We are looking for programmes that support your school from a strategic direction perspective.
A programme that supports your school’s whakawhanaungatanga, engagement and partnerships
with your community; programmes that support the culture, language and identity of your school.

Even if you are unable to source a tutor, please still make an application and we will support you to
find one.

To make an application please complete the application form HERE
or call Trudy Sears, Schools Liaison on 06 377 1379 or
0800 WAI REAP or email schools@reapwairarapa.nz to arrange a visit.

Schools are reminded that we are not a funding agency but a developmental education
organisation that works with groups to make changes for the good of others.

As this is a collaborative approach, schools should also consider the contribution that they are
making to the programme. Some good examples of this are:
• where the school wants to run the programme for part of the year, but wants REAP to only
  support part of that period (extending the length)
• where the schools runs a programme in one syndicate and REAP supports another (extending
  the breadth)
• where the school pays for travel of a resource person and significant materials that allow a
  programme to run and REAP pays for the tutor;
• the school provides teacher development and REAP provides a student component
• plus other creative ways etc.

Providing the venue for a programme to run in is not considered to be your contribution!

Your application must make clear the collaborative approach you are taking and where REAP is
adding value to your programme.
