Strength-based Learning

We use a 'strengths-based' teaching and learning approach to enhance student learning.  In our school every children are encouraged to:

At the beginning of the year, we hold a Whānau wānaka wherein the teacher 'meets the parent and meets the child'.  This is a way of flipping traditional 'meet-the-teacher' nights so that whānau have an opportunity to share with kaiako (teachers) their own and their child's aspirations and uniqueness.


Our beliefs:


"Everyone at school, students and teachers have made me feel really happy about myself.  They make me shine and congratulate me when I've done well or even if I tried my hardest.' - from one of our students.
