About Us

At the end of 2013 we held a naming ceremony for each classroom.  Their new names link to the journey through the syndicates from Te Awa (years 0-2), to Maunga (years 3-4), through to Rangi (years 5-6).    From 2014 they will be known as the following:

Te Puna; the spring

Waikato; the flow of water

Waimana; the power of the water when it can become deep and broad

Wairere; where water takes flight or descends

Te Puāwai; to blossom or come to fruition

Te Puaha; the mouth or gateway of the river and onto the next part of the journey

Ara Tiatia; series of pegs - stuck in to assist in climbing a steep ascent

Ara Matua; (noun) main road, motorway, expressway

Te Tihi; the peak of the maunga

Te Ao Rangi; Aotearoa's highest maunga and where the earth meets the sky

Te Ao Marama; the world of light-knowledge
