At Te Akau ki Papamoa school we place a strong emphasis on relationships between whanau, learners, staff and our community. Our vision of 'leading me to lead my learning' challenges students to take responsibility for their lifelong learning journey. Meanwhile, a philosophy of 'know me before you teach me' inspires our dedicated staff to create positive learning environment where all learners can celebrate success.
Te Akau ki Papamoa School welcomes international students as part of our school community. International students broaden the horizons of our domestic students by allowing them to experience other cultures, therefore promoting an awareness of cultural diversity and an acceptance of communication in our global world.Once enrolled, students and parents participate in a comprehensive orientation programme designed to orientate them with the school environment and our expectations as well as receiving ongoing pastoral care.
International students are placed in mainstream classes across Years 1 to 6, appropriate to their current learning level and will learn alongside New Zealand students of similar age. We provide English as a Second Language (ESOL) teaching, either individually or in small groups during class time if required.
