We maintain a strong connection to our whenua, our land and greatly value the connections created with Māori and Pasifika whānau. Students hear Te Reo everyday, during class lessons, their weekly Tikanga lessons with Matua Bumpa , our school values and signage. Te Reo is woven throughout our curriculum.
We have a Kapahaka rōpu (Junior, Middle and Senior) under the guidance of Skish Taumaunu, this group practices weekly.
Pasifika groups also meet weekly with Mrs Fa’amamafa and Mrs Siebert. Performances from these groups are not to be missed! Check out our calendar to find out about when practices and performances are and talk to your teacher if you are keen to join up.
The whānau hui/fono is a special time of sharing ideas and vision for our kura. Dates will be announced via our school calendar and newsletter each term.
Our annual Matariki celebrations are a real highlight in the school calendar, bringing the whole community together over stories, a noho and kai. We will be celebrating together this year (date to be advised). It’s not to be missed so watch this space.
