OUR FOUNDATION OUR HOME

TŪRANGAWAEWAE

Our natural, farm environment provides an ever changing, diverse back drop with equitable opportunities for each child to freely explore, enquire and engage purposefully within their wider world.

Turangawaewae are places we feel connected, where we belong; where we feel especially empowered and where we feel safe.

 

They are our foundation, our place in the world, our home.

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

OUR COMMUNITY 

KAITIAKITANGA

A child is a treasure, to be nurtured, to grow, to flourish 

Let us keep close together, not far apart

Whakatauki - Proverb

Our common purpose as 'guardians' or 'kaitiaki' is to guide, protect and nurture all things.

As a community we share a collective responsibility to uphold, protect and nurture each child’s rights, interests, and cultural perspectives; to value each child as unique within the context of their own world view and to strengthen and celebrate each child’s capacity for success, every day.
