He Ara Ngatahi – Getting it right, Together...

School Whakatauki

Ehara taku toa i te takitahi, engari he toa takitini –

The result of one’s work and achievement is the product of many hands.

Our school whakatauki was chosen to emphasise our philosophy of fostering inter-dependence skills in all our students.

                                 Inter-dependent: ‘dependent upon each other’

We aim to ensure that our students are able to at least partially participate and make simple personal choices in all aspects of their daily lives.
