"Building strong foundations for our children's Futures"

"Whaia te taumata mo nga tamariki e uru i roto nga tau kei mua"

Vision

We are growing our children to be confident people, adept at working in teams and able to communicate our thoughts and ideas effectively.

We are nurturing self-directed learners who view education as a life-long process.

We are working together to be innovative and enterprising, flexible and resilient in a time of constant change.

We are working with our tamariki to become citizens with a strong values base, well-prepared to actively and positively contribute to a multi-cultural society.


Our Chinese teacher Siqi Yang demonstrated the ‘Guzheng’ (a 16 stringed Zither).  All classes were able to hear the wonderful music and many students were lucky enough to have a turn at playing this instrument which has been popular in China for over 2,500 years.
