Kia ora and welcome to the Nīoreore Learning Hub.

I am the Hub Leader for the Year 1 – 4 classes. Our teachers and teacher aides work collaboratively to provide the best teaching and learning programmes and accelerate the learning of our tamariki. There is a focus on learning through play and creating an environment filled with oral and written language in these first crucial years of school. Over summer swimming is an important part of our fitness programme and all students participate. Please support this by ensuring your child comes to school with their swimming togs and a towel every day.

All children at Murupara Area School are provided with a healthy lunch every day and we are part of the fruit and milk in schools programmes. We are also a water and plain milk only school. We work with Sports BoP to run a healthy active learning programme which provides additional PE and sporting opportunities. Thank you for supporting us as this is all about teaching our tamarīiki about good nutrition and setting them up for an active and healthy life.
