Nau Mai, Bonjour, Talofa lava, Malo e lelei, Kia Orana, Kumusta, Wekom,Yõkoso, Selamat datang, and Chao mung,

We welcome you to our diverse and beautiful kura!  I often refer to our kura as the little school with the big heart, which is a true reflection of who we are.

Our Vision, Proud, unique individuals, who are creative, passionate and critical learners, and our school values are paramount in all that we do. We strive to continually achieve academically with a focus on literacy and numeracy. It is equally important that our tamariki have opportunities to reach their potential and have the ability to respectfully challenge their and others' thinking. We provide a rich curriculum that will set students up for the future.

Our teachers and staff are committed and go the extra mile for the students, providing many amazing learning opportunities and excellent teaching. We offer opportunities in many school sports, Kapa Haka, choir and we are proud to have our own swimming pool. We are inclusive and take every opportunity to give effect to Te Tiriti o Waitangi ensuring Te Reo Māori and Te ao Māori is part of our everyday learning.

Please feel free to visit us and have a look around for yourself. This whakatauki sums up our kura!

E koekoe te kōkō, e ketekete te kākā, e kūkū te kererū

The parson bird chatters, the parrot gabbles, the wood pigeon coos

In other words: It takes all sorts to make a world


Kia pai te rā, Have a great day!

Jan McDonald

Principal/ Tumuaki
