Inspiring students to 'achieve their full potential as well-rounded, motivated, lifelong learners'.
Kererū School is a small school with a roll that hovers around 25 students. Our school is in the heart of a vibrant rural community at the foothills of the Ruahine Ranges. It is a hidden gem 35 minutes from Hastings and 20 minutes from Tikokino.
Our school has a friendly environment, high expectations and a wonderful supportive staff and community who challenge our students to achieve to their full potential. We are very fortunate to have a wonderfully dedicated and dynamic team of teachers and a teacher aide who strive to ensure all children receive the best possible education. We believe in developing the whole child; physically, emotionally and mentally. We encourage our children to take risks and allow them the opportunity to be kids.
Our ADORN values are at the centre of our learning as we encourage and support students to be 'Active', 'Determined', 'Organised', 'Respectful', and 'Nurturing'.
Whilst we are a rural community, we are also a connected community. We actively seek new and different opportunities for our students to attend in town, whilst also exploring our natural environment closer to home. We incorporate digital technologies into our curriculum and focus on developing 21st Century Learning skills.
