Our culture

Cultural celebrations are an important part of our school life. All ethnic groups represented in the school share their dance, drama, language, costumes and food during our annual Cultural Festival. The week long celebrations and activities culminate in a shared lunch and an evening show for our parent community.

Te Reo Māori

Te Reo Maori is taught in all classes and all new students and staff are welcomed on to the school marae at the start of the year.
