Welcome to the official Pākōwhai School website
We hold numeracy and literacy as two of the pillars of academic success. We do not see these as the “only” important things in a child's education however we ensure at Pākōwhai School that children are literate and numerate.
We provide a broad and interesting curriculum that caters for the diverse interests of kiwi kids.
Offer an inquiry based curriculum where children are free to explore and create as part of their learning.
Foster the skills needed for children to be independent and confident learners that believe in themselves and their abilities.
Pākōwhai learners have agency in their learning. This means they are actively involved in what they learn and why they learn it.
We are actively involved in out of school events. We get our children out in the community competing against other schools in a range of activities.
Enrich our students learning through the authentic use of e-learning. At Pākōwhai School we have access to 1:1 devices but chose an approach where children aren’t always 1:1 with a device. We hold the concepts social skills and the ability to work with others in high esteem.
Te Reo & Tikanga are taught daily and we value and meet our responsibilities in relation to Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
