Our school Karakia  

This is shared every day. It is non-denominational and allows us to come together and begin our day in a calm way with the intention of reminding students of our expectations – this can be spoken in Te Reo Māori and also in English so that the meaning is really understood. It reinforces our school vision, philosophy and habits.
