Online ESOL support for schools

04/12/15

The Ministry has an online ESOL programme available for schools who have students in years 7–10 who are new learners of the English language. It is called Accelerated English Language Learning or ACCELL.

This programme on the VLN is designed to accelerate English language learning to support these students in their mainstream classes.

Schools who are new to ESOL students and who do not have established ESOL departments or ESOL teachers will find this resource invaluable.

For more information about ACCELL, see ESOL Online.

If you would like to discuss the programme, please contact Ruthanne Kennedy, eprincipal@ellinz.vln.school.nz

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

09/07/15

Māori Language Week takes place this year between Monday 27 July and Sunday 2 August. The kaupapa for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2015 is ‘Whāngaihia te reo Māori ki ngā mātua.’ We aim to encourage and support the language development of parents who can then whāngai the language to their children. 

This resource page offers ideas, links, and stories to help schools engage with their parents, families, and whānau to support the learning of te reo Māori in both the school and home environment.

But what happens when the week is over? This blog post highlights resources, tools, and school stories to help you carry the momentum of this one concentrated week of language learning into the rest of the school year.
