Nga Potiki Tangata Whenua

Nga Potiki


We acknowledge Nga Potiki Iwi as tangata whenua, and are committed to maintaining a close working reciprocal relationship.
We recognise and value the unique position of Maori in Aotearoa, and the importance of Te Tiriti o Waitangi. 

Te Reo Maori and tikanga is incorporated throughout the school as a normal part of what happens every day. This complimentary approach acknowledges and respects the values, traditions and histories of both Maori and Pakeha.

All students have the opportunity to learn Te Reo Maori as a curriculum subject.  Parents wanting their children to receive total immersion in Te Reo Maori and tikanga will be referred to other local schools that provide that service.

Building close relationships with whānau is a priority.  Whanau are a significant component of the partnership relationship, which ensures Maori students are able to learn as Maori, and achieve at the highest levels.
