OUR PRINCIPAL

E nga maunga karangaranga,

e nga wairere, whakapiri mai, whakatata mai.

Ko tenei te reo powhiri e whakatau

atu ra ki a koutou e aku rangatira.

As the Principal, I extend a warm welcome to all tamariki and whānau.

This year our focus areas for promoting student achievement are:

  • Numeracy/Pāngarau

  • Digital technology

  • Positive behaviour for learning


Te Kura o Te Pāroa actively promotes a culture of whakawhānaungatanga, respect and caring for others. The learning environments are characterised by positive tuakana-teina and adult-student interactions and relationships. Students feel valued and demonstrate confidence and pride in being Māori.

Te Kura o Te Pāroa aim to provide an inclusive learning enviroment empowering all students to succeed.

Te Kura o te Pāroa will deliver the New Zealand Curriculum and level 1-3 Te Reo Maori in 7 Auraki classrooms. The 5 Rumaki classrooms deliver Te Marautanga o Aotearoa at level 1 Te Reo.

All classes deliver programmes based on NgatiAwatanga.

Our School values its place in the community our interaction with whanau. We welcome parents into our school, knowing that the relationship between school and home is important for promoting our students learning. We promote values based learning to encouage students to enact Nga tikanga O Te kura and to strive for excellence


Nō reira, ko te manu e kai ana te miro, nōna te ngāhere.

Ko te manu i kaingia te mātauranga, nōna te aō.
