Murupara Area School
E āku rangatira, tēnei te mihi matakuikui ki a kōutou katoa.
Tēna kōutou katoa and welcome to Murupara Area School.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome all new and returning students. I am looking forward to an exciting year together as we combine our shared passions and create the school that will provide future options for our tamariki long after they leave us.
A new school means new opportunities and benefits. As a teaching staff we are learning advisors and work with you to create personalised individual learning plans to ensure our students leave this school at and above the expected national levels. Schools with students from Year 1 to Year 13 offer a fantastic learning experience for every student. We will know our students well andbe able to give them individual attention, have high expectations and nudge them into trying new experiences.
In considering the year ahead, my desire is that our students and their whanau become fullyinvolved in everything the school and the community has to offer.The partnership of school, whanau and community provides a strong foundation enabling us to deliver a truly holistic education and maximise each student’s potential. I invite you all to join us as we take the first steps toward creating the community school we know will graduate successful, happy, confident, future contributing citizens of the world.
To the students of our new kura, I invite you to make the most of your time here. Choose your courses and options wisely, talk with your teachers and parents, enjoy all there is to offer, be happy, be focused and believe in your own potential. This is your year!
Tēna kōutou, tēna kōutou, tēna kōutou katoa.
