Tēnā Koutou

Mellons Bay School is proud of our committment to Te Reo Māori and Tikanga Māori. We provide extensive enrichment opportunities as well as assimilate it into our everyday classroom routine.

Our goal is to provide our students with the knowledge to be able to converse in basic Te Reo Māori and we hope to instill an interest in the culture.

Our enrichment programmes for our Māori and Pasifika students enable our tamariki to participate as Māori and Pacifica. It also maintains a high level of hauora (well-being).
Our intended outcomes for these programmes are that we want our Māori and Pasifika students to feel empowered to be leaders in our school.  We want our Māori and Pasifika students to appreciate their heritage and appreciate the uniqueness of their cultures.
