Ngā mihi nui ki a koe - Greetings

Welcome to Central School Te Kura Waenga o Ngāmotu. For more than a century we have provided a rich learning environment where students ‘learn by doing’.

We endeavour to provide the best primary education opportunities as we facilitate every child's learning journey towards Personal Excellence. Guided by our Central PRIDE values - Personal Excellence, Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Equity, our rich and holistic curriculum aims to develop the whole child, enabling them to grow and develop a real passion for learning. Children are the heart of the matter. From the Board of Trustees, through the teaching staff and learning support assistants, children are treated with genuine aroha during their six years with us. We take our roles as kaitiaki, guardians, of your most precious taonga very seriously. Every decision we make at Central School Te Kura Waenga o Ngāmotu is filtered through one simple question...'will this benefit children?' If the answer is yes then we proceed. If it is no, then we do not...it's that simple.

I value the commitment that you have made in choosing Central School Te Kura Waenga o Ngāmotu for your child’s education. Please be generous with your time and support our efforts to achieve our common goal: to nurture and develop a personal sense of worth and confidence in each of our young people and to encourage individual talent to flourish. Let's get to know each other because together, school and home working as one will achieve great things for kids.

Poipoia te kakano kia puawai. Nurture the seed and it will blossom.
