Te Koromakinga / Vision Statement
“Iti rearea teitei Kahikatea ka tāea”
Ahakoa te aha ka tāea e te tamaiti te eke ki tōna ake taumata. Mā te ū ki ngā whakapono me ngā uara a ō tātou mātua tūpuna ka ea ai ngā tumanako katoa. (No matter what obstacles we come across we will succeed in what ever we pursue. If we grasp to the beliefs and values of our ancestors we will accomplish all that we set out for).
He Rōpū Rūmaki mātou kei raro i te maru o tētahi kura ā Rohe. Nā Wini Bidois i whakatū ai Te Rōpū Aroha ki te Reo i te tau 1989. E whā ngā akomanga ara ko Matakōkiri, Ko Meremere, Ko Tawera me Matariki.
Ko ngā whakapono: Beliefs
E whakapono ana te Rōpū
- ki ngā mātāpono o Te Aho Matua (Te Aho Matua underpins everything we do in our Ropu)
- ka tāea e ngā tamariki katoa te ako (all children have the ability learn and succeed)
- mā te mahi ngātahi o te kura me te whānau ka eke ngā tamariki ki ngā taumata ikeike (by whānau and school working together our children will reach their highest potential)
- mā te huarahi o te reo Māori me ngā tikanga ka tipu, ka rea ngā tamariki i roto i te ao nei (if we grasp and encompass our language and heritage our children will grow and prosper)
Ko ngā iwi: Tribal Connections
- Ko Ngāti Mahanga, ko Tainui a Whiro me ētahi atu o ngā iwi o Whaingaroa nei
- Ka hāpai te Rōpū i ngā tikanga a Ngāti Mahanga, Tainui a Whiro me ētahi atu iwi o Whaingaroa nei
Iti rearea, teitei Kahikatea ka tāea” “No matter the obstacles we will succeed”
Once a term, sometimes twice, the Rōpū kaiako meet with whānau to update them on current events. These hui are normally at the beginning of each term. We expect and encourage all whānau to attend these hui. New enrolments are expected to attend our whānau hui and introduce themselves.
Rōpū notices are sent out fortnightly to inform whānau of what may be happening in the Rōpū, and advise of up coming trips, events and kaupapa.
Kaiako report to whānau each term on what tamariki are learning. This may consist of parent teacher interviews, 3 Way conferences or written reports.
New Rōpū shirts will be available to purchase from our school office towards the end of term one this year. The tamariki are expected to wear these on school trips, to tangihanga or at pōwhiri held at school.
Ētahi Kaupapa ia Tau
- Term one of each year, the Rōpū go on camp. The purpose of these camps are to build positive relationships and learn about our school values.
- Each term, classrooms may travel independently on excursions relating to their learning topics. Teachers try and keep costs as low as possible and give whānau notice.
- We are a part of the Western Cluster which means we take part in sporting and cultural activities each term with other schools in our cluster.
- Bi-annually the Rōpū have an end of year trip.
- We tautoko poukai as much as we can, attend the Koroneihana and the waka kōpapa regatta.
- It is important to us to support any activities happening within our community i.e. unveilings, tangihanga, Maui Dolphin Day, Kaumātua events.
