Pakirehua (Inquiry)

by Willow Brizelle

"I have really enjoyed learning about the history of Monrad Tirohanga and where our classroom and building names come from. I liked learning about the legend of Okatia and the creation of the Manawatū river. We have also been learning waiata from our own iwi and how they relate back to the stories of our own whakapapa. My favourite part of this inquiry has been learning about where I come from, who I come from, where others come from and how we connect through whakapapa".

Ngā Uara o te Kura - Our School Values

by Te Poari Matua (The Board of Trustees)

At the core of our values are ‘whanaungatanga’ and ‘tūrangawaewae’. We believe strongly that the foundation of our identity comes from who we come from. We acknowledge that every child brings with them, first and foremost, their own ‘identity’ to be treasured and nurtured for their own well-being. We see ‘whanaungatanga’ as a sense of family connection - a basis for working together which provides people with a sense of belonging. We want our students to be proud of their school and feel a real sense of belonging.

Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L)

by PB4L Team

All students have worked extremely hard throughout the term displaying our school values. Many have already received values bands and badges. In acknowledging everyone's efforts in receiving yellow PB4L tickets, we had our first whole school PB4L reward day. We were meant to have a water tabloids sports event, but we celebrated with movies, indoor games, technology, and treats due to the weather.
