Poipoia te kākano kia puāwai / Nurture the seed and it will blossom

Our high expectations extend to all aspects of College life. We believe ākonga (students) have great potential, with skills and talents to share, develop and contribute to the school and the wider community. We expect ākonga to engage fully with all learning activities and opportunities in a culture of manaakitanga, whanaungatanga and whakamana.

We invite you to learn more about us, and our culture of care, where the formation of virtues, values, scholarship and service is at the Heart of what we do. We look forward to welcoming your whānau into our community.
