Te Puna Akona
Te reo Māori bilingual pathway
Papatoetoe South School is committed to providing a quality bilingual pathway for all whānau and tamariki who wish to learn te reo me ona tikanga Māori alongside the New Zealand Curriculum.
Te Puna Akona offers a safe, inclusive and culturally responsive learning environment where tamariki feel empowered to learn and grow as Māori. Every child is motivated and supported to realise their full potential and achieve academic success.
Strong relationships with whānau and the community provide our tamariki with opportunities to experience learning outside of the classroom. This includes regular excursions to places such as the Polyfest, the Stardome, the Zoo, Sports exchanges, and Marae noho.
We aim to grow and nurture happy, creative, and confident bilingual students who will make a positive contribution to Aotearoa. Ka Hikitia!
