Our Tikanga

Arakura School seeks to provide each individual child with a well rounded education that will see them become life-long learners. We have a range of values and visions that help direct that.

Tangata ako ana i te whare, te turanga ki te marae, tau ana

A person who is taught at home, will stand collected on the Marae

Essentially, a child who is given proper values at home and cherished within his family, will not only behave well amongst the family but also within society and throughout his life.

We see Arakura School as an extension of both your whanau and society; joining in the middle and equipping your child with skills and learning that they need to succeed in any avenue in life and achieve at their very best potential. We are all somewhere on that pathway; the Pathway of Learning.
