‘Mana te Tuatahi’
Te Whānau o Pātiki is a Māori bilingual unit that sits within the multi-cultural kura auraki, Rosebank School. It is our aim as a whānau to help each tamaiti realise their potential. We believe this is best done through providing a nurturing learning environment built on tikanga Māori, mātauranga Māori and te reo Rangatira. By the end of Year 6 students should be confident, respectful, resilient and critical learners in the multiple worlds they live in.
