He kupu nā te Tumuaki:

 Kia ora tātou e te whānau me ngā tū āhuatanga o te wā, otira ko te tau hou nei. E whakamiha atu ana ki a tātou . Nau mai ki te tau 2016! Ka mahara atu ki te hunga kua ngaro atu ki tua, otira ki te whānau kua pania mai e te ringa o aituā. Haere, e hoki ki te kāinga o te tangata, te huinga mai o te hunga mataipō. Kua oti atu e! Tātou, ngā mahuetanga iho tihei mauri ora ki a tātou katoa.

I hope all has been well. A big year is expected. I have attached the wātaka ā tau 2016.

Ngā manaakitanga o te Runga Rawa ki a tātou koutou

Nāku nei

 TE KURA-Ā-IWI O WHAKATUPURANGA RUA MANO 

Our kura learning community is excited to extend a warm and friendly welcome to all tauira and whānau.

Whānau and community is a strength of our kura and we encourage our tauira to live by a set of values that will help them be positive contributors to the communities they grow up in.

We are all learners at Te Kura-ā-Iwi o Whakatupuranga Rua Mano and we know, if we work together, a strong sense of team and success can be achieved.

Our philosophy is based on 10 guiding principles (Matāpono), to extend and empower our learners.  We aim to be responsive to the needs of each individual and personalise a set of learning experiences that are both meaningful and motivating.

“What is best for the tamariki” is central to decision making.

Our school is forward thinking and future focused to ensure students receive the very best learning opportunities to prepare them for their future.

We look forward to working alongside you to ensure your time at Te Kura-ā-Iwi o Whakatupuranga Rua Mano, is full of learning, opportunity, fun and great times together.
