Our commitment is to see our students graduate from Huapai District School, confident, articulate and motivated learners. Our approach is to build programmes and opportunities that recognise the “whole child”, placing value on all aspects of a child’s well being, interests and needs.

Our charter goals

Our  charter goals are based on a strong foundation and four equal sides, making the focus on the whole person. The symbol of the wharenui illustrates these four dimensions:

Taha tinana 

The capacity for physical growth and development.

Taha Hinengaro

The capacity to communicate, to think and to feel; mind and body are inseparable.

Taha Whanau

The capacity to belong, to care and to share, where individuals are part of wider social systems.

Taha Wairua

The capacity for identity and wider influence.
