PEOPLE OF THE LAND BE ONE

Our school whakatauki represents our values of Manaakitanga and integrity, where everyone is welcome and every child will thrive.  Our Whakatuaki, Vision and Values are living throughout the school in everything we do and all that we are.  We are all connected through the land we stand on, learn on and grow on.  This banner was made in memorial to the Christchurch tragedy 15/04/2019. Every child in the school at the time of its making contributed their hand to it.  WE ARE ONE.
