School management philosophy and structure
- occupational therapy
- speech and language
- Physical education
Staffing will comprise a small core administration unit, staff trainers, core teachers and the head of school. Teachers aides and specialist staff (OT, SLT, Physiotherapist etc) will be university undergraduates – teamed with a specialist staff trainer through their guilds.
Interns will have the chance for real hands-on developmental tutoring with students. A chance to test their theories and leverage from the rest of their guild.
With Orewa beach minutes away and Auckland city nearby, OASIS School takes life-work balance seriously. We encourage you to bring your whole self to work, and to leave work behind when the weekend arrives.
Each team member is encouraged to raise tensions (problems or concerns with our current practices and facilities) and propose solutions using Loomio.
Both staff and interns are challenged to continuously seek improvement at an individual student level and for the school as a whole.
There is no hierarchy but the school is bound by its obligations to provide the highest care and education possible to our students.
- the design and construction of the residential facilities
- the swimming pool and sports equipment
- the arts and crafts facilities for the vocational area.
- maintenance of the facilities
- A university partnership for the school and curriculum for internship program
The project will be built with agile or incremental expansion at its core. The dormitories aimed to be expandable, bedroom by bedroom using modular prefabricated construction.Much like the school’s physical structure can expand, our teaching capacity can modularly increase as we create new Scrum Teams of interns and facilitators.
Vocational studies, work and autonomy
The ultimate goal being a semi autonomous life, either within the schools dedicated dormitory nearby or in a satellite shared house.
