Te Reo, Te Mana, Te Wairua
(Under review in 2010)
‘Te Marautanga o Kohukohu’ is our school based curriculum document. This document has been developed with input from students, staff, Board of Trustees, whanau and wider school community. Through ‘Engaging Whanau Hui’ we have developed a document that caters to the aspirations of all students.
We are committed to providing opportunities for all our students to experience success; we are also committed to ensuring all our Maori students have success as Maori. This success is based on the aspirations of our community. Culture, language, knowledge and identity will be realised through this document, Te Marautanga o Kohukohu.
The official opening for the school was on Saturday 16 December 1972 at 1pm. The Principal at this time was Mr Dennis Thorne. The old school house is now used by the community for meetings and community events. It is now owned by Conservation. The old pillars that took pride of place at the front gate of the old school were re-erected at the entrance of the new school site in 1972. Inscribed on these gates are the names of WWI veterans.
Photos of the old school house, buildings works for the current school site are available for viewing with Nola Hansen.
