Welcome to Te Horanui RTLB Cluster 36.
Resource Teachers: Learning and Behaviour (RTLB) are funded to work together with teachers and schools to support kaiako and kura to support the engagement and achievement of students in Years 1-10 who have learning and/or behaviour difficulties. We offer a range of flexible, tailored model of supports to schools that may benefit individual ākonga, groups of ākonga or kaiako, whole classes or the whole school, by exploring systems and practices school-wide.

Te Horanui have a team of 16 RTLB who support 58 schools across Southern Christchurch, Selwyn, Malvern, Mid-Canterbury and Banks Peninsula.The name of our cluster 'Te Horanui' fittingly translates as 'The Spreading Out'. The peninsula spreads out across from its volcanic origin. The valleys spread into the sea, often with little creeks and rivers flowing out from them. The rivers near the schools spread out across the plains. Waihora, the lake, translates as "water spread out". Likewise, the work of Te Horanui RTLB spreads out into cluster schools to support and enhance understanding of how best to improve outcomes for our tamariki.

If you have any questions about Te Horanui, please get in touch.
