On behalf of the board of trustees, staff and students of Papatoetoe North School I welcome you.

We are a vibrant diverse school community who value whanaungatanga, tautua and kindness.

We believe that every student brings who they are into the school and that because of their input we all benefit.

The Treaty of Waitangi is the core document for education and because we are all signatories we all have the right to; have our language and culture protected, to participate in the school as we are and to benefit from genuine partnership.

We acknowledge tangata whenua and prioritise Māori success. We also build strong connections with all the people groups within our school community.

Languages are an important part of our community and we strongly encourage the use of heritage languages at school as we interact together as parents, staff and in learning.

We have 3 Te Reo bilingual classes, Te Whānau Tupuranga,  throughout the school and this has led the way to establish 3 bilingual Samoan classes, Fanau mo le Lumana’i, and a bilingual Hindi class, Gyan Uday.

We are known in education for the way we connect to and involve our families with what happens in the classroom, something we are proud of.

I encourage you to look around the website and our Facebook page, you are also welcome to come and meet me and the team if you would like to look around.

Ngā mihi nui,

Stan Tiatia
