We inspire learning by providing a fun and challenging environment. We create positive social interactions. We welcome, accept and respect our community of learners.
Ka whakaawetia ai te akoaka
Na te ahuatanga rekareka
Na te ahuatanga whakapatari hoki
Ka manaakitia hokia e matou o matou akonga o te hapori.
Our favourite 2019 ERO comments:
Children lead their own learning through a curriculum that is based on their interests and highly reflective of their community. They are supported to explore their thinking about the world and often share what they know. Regular excursions give children meaningful opportunities to visit places of local significance. Children display a sense of self and belonging.
A holistic approach to teaching and learning effectively promotes children's wellbeing as a platform for further learning. Routines and strategies to support social competence are consistently implemented to foster children's sense of security.
Māori children's identities are valued as the foundation for their educational success. Teachers acknowledge and make connections to individual children's pepeha. They are building understanding of kaupapa Māori approaches to teaching and learning and make these visible within the curriculum.
