Tuakana O Poroutawhao

Tuakana Ō Poroutawhao represents everything we want our Year 8 students to be when they complete their time here at our school and move on to further education. The title Tuakana means the eldest child in a family.


The ideal qualities we expect our Tuakana (Year 8 students) to have are shown in the leaves of this beautiful ti kouka (cabbage tree) which are native to our area.

These ideal qualities include being…

Proud Aspiring Healthy

Caring Inquiring Well-mannered
Involved Hard-working Respectful
Artistic Numerate Literate
