Parihaka Tū Tonu!
Steadfast / Stand Firm Parihaka
Our aspirations for our children are that they have a strong belief in self, are happy, socially and emotionally competent and see themselves as change makers.
We aim to provide a welcoming, safe, happy environment where children can be engaged, challenged and lead in their learning.
We believe that high quality learning is reflected through our positive relationships with children and their Whānau.
Our Team are passionate, reflective, responsive practitioners; highly skilled to support children at all levels. Our uniqueness stems from our ability to celebrate diversity.
We embrace our natural environment and acknowledge our connection to our Maunga Parihaka and to those who have walked before us.
Ko Parihaka Parihaka
Tū tonu Stand steadfast
Tū kaha Stand with strength
Tū pakari Stand with integrity
Tū maia Stand with courage
Tū aroha Stand with love
