Ngutuawa School

At Ngutuawa School we are passionate about what we do - providing a world-class, future-focused education for each of the learners in our care.

We seek to nurture our children in a whanau-based learning approach, where the emphasis is on the relationship between teacher and learner, and the focus is on educating the whole child in partnership with our parents and our wider community. We expect our children to be CARING, to nurture each other and their environment, and to make a contribution to our school and/or wider community every year.

Operating as usual

Thank you to our whanau Rose White for her harakeke workshop, Mahalia for her braiding, please follow her at Mahdusa for her cool braids and Kiri Te Moana for her poi making and she is also a champion weaver. Thank you to Amellyia Nolan for her fantastic organisational skills.
Thank you whanau for joining us we all had a fun afternoon.
