Bridging the gap from education to community.

We believe it is important to bring generations together. We live by the concept of Turangawaewae, often engaging and exploring local places where we feel especially empowered and connected. We value reciprocal relationships with places and organisations within our local community.


The reciprocal nature of all teaching and learning that builds caring and inclusive learning communities.


The health and wellbeing of all people are protected and nurtured.


To improve and develop meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.


The responsive partnership that works towards equitable outcomes for tamariki, kaiako and whānau.


A warm authentic atmosphere ensuring equitable experiences for all.

Creating a home away from home.

We aim to provide a homely environment, rich with resources and a focus on belonging for our tamaraki and whānau. We place high importance on quality relationships between kaiako and tamariki to enhance learning and development.
