Connect/ Hono 

We strive to build relationships with learners, whanau, teacher, school, community.
We find out about our learners (whanaungatanga), how they learn, what their interests are, what gets them excited, their passions and talents, their curiosities!

Challenge/ Whakatara

Taking the next steps to grow, learning from mistakes, trying new things/ giving it a go and keep going (karawhiua), going into the learning pit (out of my comfort zone), exploring, justifying, discovering, creating, extending myself to go to a new level (persist, persevere, risk take), resilience.

Empower/ Whakamana


Our teachers give the power to  students, to work with them (not to give work to them). They create choice and help children be self managing - taking responsibility for their next steps, what their learning can look like, who they work with, where they work and when they do things.


Together we inspire learning
