Ka mahitahi mātou o te Kura
o Tāwhai me te hapori nei, hei
whāngai i ngā pūkenga, i te
mātauranga, i ngā uara me ngā
wheako e eke ai te tamaiti ki te
taumata o tōna pitomata.

Our school perceives learning to be a co-operative partnership between students, parents and staff. In order to attain excellence, it is important that all three work towards the obtaining of all curriculum objectives in terms of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. These are important skills in the development of independence and the acceptance by children of responsibility for their own learning and later for adult life.
