Onehunga High School has run an Academic Mentoring Programme since 2013, working in conjunction with the Univeristy of Auckland as part of the "Starpath" project. Initally trialled in 2013 with the Y11 cohort, it was rolled out across the whole school in 2014.
Academic Mentoring recognises that students need to do well across all subjects to be successful. All students at OHS have an Academic Mentor (Kaitiaki) who is responsible for tracking their progress throughout the year across all subjects. The Kaitiaki will meet with students and families throughout the year and work with them to set and track progress towards goals.
Focus of Academic Mentoring:
Y9 and Y10:
Y11, Y12 and Y13:
3 Way Conversations: (2 x a year)
During 3 Way conversations the Kaitiaki meets with the student and families for 20 - 30 min. They will discuss the student's current achievement, and how they are tracking against the qualification they are working towards. The Kaitiaki will also discuss areas that the student needs to work on, and work with the student and family to ensure they are receiving the support they need.
Academic Tracking / Teaching and Learning Comments
At regular intervals throughout the year students / families will have access to progress reports which will be able to be downloaded through the KAMAR Portal.
