We warmly welcome our families to our school and look forward to getting to know you as we work together to support your son in their education.
Our values are as follows:
We believe in a God who loves and cares for us and as a community we are guided by gospel values to live an authentic Christian life.
We support everyone in our community to belong and we come together in the good times and the tough times.
We are respectful, tolerant, compassionate and encouraging to all, and we walk alongside others - particularly those in need.
We have the courage to strive for success, to be honest, to be ourselves and to stand up for what is right and good.
We are kind, patient, forgiving, and treat others as we would like to be treated. We honestly accept who we are - our gifts, our strengths and our weaknesses.
Mâwaihakona Stream Pou
When a totara log was found and retrieved from the Mâwaihakona Stream in 2011 it was decided to use this resource as a Pou Rahui. The idea of Pou Rahui is to make an area sacred – a no take zone. This was duly carved and installed. The Pou Rahui was named Hato Patariki carved by Dane Kingi (Arawa-Kahungunu). The next Pou was carved from a 2 – 3000 year old log. This is the second Pou Rahui and marks the downstream end of our Tapu area. This is carved in the Rakauwairua style wood spirit (Tiki Wanganga) by Ihaia Puketapu.
The Maihi (bargeboards) and Amo (side posts) were carved by Ihaia Puketapau and represent (Maihi) Friends of the Mâwaihakona Stream and (Amo) ancestor figures. The centre post (Pou Koukou Aro) was carved by Sonny Davis from the same log as Hato Patariki, the cable mask (wheku) at the top represents Rongo Atua of agriculture and peaceful things, also Atua (God) of sports. The name Rongomatane is Rongo and Tane. Tane is the Atua of the forest. This is the main entrance to the restoration of the Mâwai Hakona Stream.
These two Pou were carved by Sonny Davis (Tuhoe) from logs retrieved from the banks of the Manawatu River, they were dated by Waikato University at 2 – 3000 years old. These are Pou Mahara memorial posts, Nga Toa, remembering those who fought their way down to Wellington from North Taranaki (Ngāti Toa – Te Ati Awa and Ngāti Tama) He Kainoho Hou is to remember these who came up the Lower Valley – over the hills, up the river to settle in the area known as Upper Hutt.
