Manaakitanga 4 Learning (M4L)

Welcome to Te Kura Tuatahi o Te Puke, where we embrace the transformative power of positive behavior for learning through our unique approach: “Manaakitanga for Life.” Our school community is built on a foundation of respect, kindness, and empathy, fostering a positive and inclusive learning environment that nurtures the potential of every student.

Manaakitanga, a cherished Māori value, lies at the heart of our behavior matrix across the kura. It guides our students in developing a strong sense of self-worth and compassion for others, preparing them to become respectful, responsible, and confident individuals throughout their lives.

At Te Kura Tuatahi o Te Puke, we celebrate and reinforce positive behaviors in all aspects of school life. Our students are encouraged to uphold Manaakitanga by embracing the diversity of ideas, cultures, and experiences within our community. We believe that by promoting an environment of mutual understanding and support, we create the ideal conditions for effective learning and personal growth.

Our teachers and staff work collaboratively with students and whānau to instill the principles of Manaakitanga in all interactions. By fostering a sense of belonging and shared responsibility, we empower our students to make positive choices, resolve conflicts constructively, and develop strong leadership skills.

Through Manaakitanga, we aim to nurture the whole child, helping them flourish academically, socially, and emotionally. As our students practice empathy and consideration for others, they build meaningful connections and lasting friendships that extend beyond the classroom.

At Te Kura Tuatahi o Te Puke, we are committed to providing a safe and inclusive space where Manaakitanga for Life flourishes. We believe that when our students embrace these core values, they gain essential life skills that will serve them well in any future endeavor.

Join us on this exciting journey of positive behavior for learning, where Manaakitanga becomes a way of life, nurturing our students’ potential and preparing them to be compassionate and resilient global citizens. Together, we create a school community where everyone thrives and shines bright with the spirit of Manaakitanga.
