Moturoa School has always focused on providing a quality education to the students and families of Moturoa. Our original motto “honor before honors” holds true with our current school mission statement- “In the spirit of partnership we aim to nurture our students to be respectful, globally aware, curious learners who contribute to a peaceful world.”
We allow our students to be able to critically reflect on their current skills, knowledge and understanding and use this to determine and access relevant resources to inform and shape their next steps in their learning journey.
How we make these rich connections to their world will encourage students to access and share prior knowledge, that informs inquiries which leads to deeper understandings of how the history of this place shapes who we are now and who we want to become.
We do this through our connect concept based curriculum, Trees for survival and enviroschool focus, playful learning pedagogy in our junior school, whanau and community engagement and relationships with iwi and hapu.
