is a space where we focus on helping each student be their very best. We meet students where they are and find the ways to unlock their learning. Agri curriculum and Papatūānuku provide amazing opportunities for us to help each student flourish and realise their potential.
We believe that every student deserves to learn in a space where they can truly be “them”. Where they don’t need to change themselves to fit the school box- but where the school changes to draw out the best in them.
We focus on removing barriers and help our students to see themselves as powerful students who ‘own’ their learning.
We ensure that all students achieve to their maximum potential, celebrating their culture, identity and interests. Students are guided and supported by quality teaching, informed parents and whānau in a safe learning environment.
Our curriculum has a strong focus on Agriculture and Horticulture. Students run, lead and manage projects that connect this learning with real life contexts. This has included rearing animals (calves, sheep and pigs), managing bees, learning trapping, building projects and plant to pizza.
This is our Bush classroom where students learn to explore, take risks, learn science, maths and literacy in the outdoors. A space where being you is more than enough- in fact it is the very best thing you could be!
We spend a day a week in Papatūānuku for 6 weeks in term one, two and Four.
We currently have 2 mini buses. One bus drives 2 runs out of Woodville and our other bus manages 2 runs covering the Kumeroa and Kohinui areas.
We ask for a small yearly donation (that is optional) to help us cover these.
