Why Choose Us

Kia ora e te Whanau
More than 61% of the kura are now back in class and we are expecting the majority of our students back over the coming week. I would like to thank and compliment all staff both teaching and support staff for the fantastic work they have done over the past week . Our kura opened seamlessly last week and this is largely due to all the work occuring behind the scenes to ensure as children walked in the gate it would feel like the kura they know and love.
I would also like to thank you as parents / caregivers for the support and cooperation you have shown through level 2. We have appreciated you ringing first and making appointments with Whaea Tesh in the office and teachers before coming in. We have always been a great team and I think Covid 19 has made us even more close and tight as a community.
Modern Learning Environment
All of our classrooms have recently been outfitted with new modern learning furniture, students can choose the best learning setting for them. Sitting on stools or cushions on the floor at high or low desks, it's up to them. Classrooms are bright and colourful. The junior mainstream class has been fully refurbished and a resource withdrawal room built as an addition to this class. It's a wonderful environment for our children who are starting school for the first time.
