Matau Team ~ Years 0 – 3
We have a vibrant learning environment which includes periods of structured learning, and times of creative discovery. This combined approach provides opportunities for students to develop the values and key competencies of the New Zealand curriculum, as they explore, experiment and problem-solve through play.

Tangaroa Team ~ Years 4 – 8
The Tangaroa team work collaboratively to plan and implement classroom programmes. We aspire to follow the servant leadership model of Jesus, putting the learner at the centre of all we do. Students in Tangaroa will have a specialist teacher in English, Maths and Science.
There is an expectation that students will take an active role in their learning, with teachers and students working collaboratively to set goals and design learning tasks. An Inquiry learning approach provides our students with opportunities to explore topics at greater depth.
