Welcome to Ngaio


Tena tatou katoa e te whanau, 
Nau mai haere mai! 

Ngaio is made up of Year 3/4 children and 2 teachers, Cameron and Anne. 

This year we are also lucky to have Max and Morag, 2 student teachers currently completing their Masters in Education who will be in each Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Ngaio is a unique learning environment with 3 main spaces which the children get the opportunity to work across based on the type of task, or preferred learning style. A focus in Ngaio is developing independent and self management skills and children are given lots of opportunities to work in a range of ways such as whole class, in groups or independently to build these.  


As teachers, we plan and teach collaboratively to access the strengths of our team, ensuring we provide rich learning experiences for everyone! Between us we have skills in interests in a range of learning areas such as P.E., music, art and digital technology. 

We believe the in the school values and build whanaungatanga in Ngaio by supporting the kids to not only use them, but notice others who are as well.  

These values are 

Mana Tangata - We value ourselves

Māramatanga - We value active learning 

Manaakitanga - We value other people 

Whanaungatanga - We value our community


We look forward to an exciting year of learning and growth.


Ko te ahurei o te tamaiti arihia ō tātou mahi.

Let the uniqueness of the child guide what we do.
