Hereora cluster has been working in the 'uncomfortable' stage of developing a hunch, and sometimes returning to scanning' to come back again to a hunch. As part of this there has been a process of reducing vulnerability between network members, and the leaders have been active in fostering cognitive conflict in a way that combines trust and challenge. 
A strong education system, from early childhood to tertiary, will be critical to the redevelopment of greater Christchurch and its economy in the wake of the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011. This is why the Ministry of Education worked with the community and the sector to develop a plan for renewal that will meet the educational needs of children and young people, and support social, cultural and economic recovery. Here is the background information for our, and all other greater Christchurch LCCs.
