MEMBER PROFILE • MATAHUI ROAD SCHOOL
Matahui Road School is a small independent primary school situated in a picturesque rural setting at Aongatete, just outside Katikati. It was founded 24 years ago as an alternative to the schooling already available within the catchment area. The school’s mission statement is: Inspiring creativity, self-esteem, and a love of learning, within a caring family community. With a maximum average class size of 17 students (15 for new entrants), teachers are able to develop in-depth relationships with each child. This creates an environment in which the child feels valued as an individual and provides an ideal setting for positive leaning. Programmes aim to foster independence, self-confidence and a love of learning. The school has established a record of educational innovation and high achievement in academic, cultural and sporting fields. The caring social dynamic brings about a positive playground environment in which creative and cooperative play thrives.
