About Us

Our school’s motto is “tukua o punga” – cast your nets, which encapsulates the key purpose of schooling – to enable students to cast their nets so that they can be successful learners, reach their personal potential and be purposeful, productive and caring members of society.

AN INCLUSIVE SCHOOL

We seek to draw on the talents each student possesses as a starting point for realising their unique potential so that not only do they benefit personally, but so does whatever society they are part of.

WE ARE FAMILY – LOOKING AFTER EACH OTHER

A strong sense of belonging and caring for each other is fostered through all of the school’s structures and systems; supplementing this is the availability of a suite of on-site student support agencies.

INDIVIDUALITY MATTERS – SEE POTENTIAL IN EVERYONE

We start with Identity. Who you are is the very essence of being. We very much value the uniqueness of each student – each with their own personality, aptitude and strengths.

EMBRACING CHANGE THROUGH CHALLENGE, INQUIRY, EVIDENCE AND INNOVATION

Success for each student is a whole school expectation and our curriculum /timetable is designed to be flexible to enable this to happen. We have a national reputation for being an innovative school .

 LEARNING AND TEACHING IS THE BUSINESS

We have high quality teachers who believe in our students. Positive relationships between the teacher and student are the norm – learning is seen as a partnership.

 GREAT EXPECTATIONS AND WIDE-RANGING LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

We are a school that holds high ambitions for our students. Success for each student is a whole school expectation.
