Otari School - Te Kura o Otari

 

Otari School Vision – 

Te Tirohanga Whānui o te Kura o Otari 

 

‘Inspiring a love of learning through an education 

that values the development of the whole child’ 


E tipu, e rea, mō ngā rā o tō ao, 

ko tō ringaringa 

ki ngā rākau a te Pākehā 

hei oranga mō tō tinana,
 ko tō ngākau ki ngā taonga o ō tīpuna
 

hei tikitiki mō tō māhunga,
 Ko tō wairua ki tō Atua

nāna nei ngā mea katoa. 

 

Grow up and thrive
For the days destined to you,
Your hands to the tools of the
Pākehā
To provide physical sustenance,
Your heart to the treasures of your Māori ancestors
As a diadem for your brow,
Your soul to your God
 To whom all things belong.
(Tā Apirana Ngata)  


The Otari School Curriculum/ Te Marautanga o Te Kura o Otari has been developed to express our school community’s particular approach to learning and teaching. This shared document expresses our directions for learning, including our vision, values and principles; how we approach planning for the incorporation of the key competencies; and how the learning areas and their relevant achievement objectives from the gazetted national curricula are delivered. It clarifies the priorities for learning within each strand and identifies what constitutes an effective pedagogy in our school/ kura. It also documents how we conduct our reviews and the on-going design of our school’s Curriculum/ Marautanga.
 
A condensed version of the Otari School Curriculum is available from the library.
