Kia ora, Talofa lava, Mālō e lelei, Kia Orāna, Ni sa bula, Kam na bane ni Mauri,

Here at Hato Patariki we are proud of and embrace our cultural diversity.  We offer our students the opportunity to become members of the Kapa Haka Roopu and this is the perfect space to extend their knowledge on Tikanga Māori, Ngā Mahi a Rēhia and Te Reo Māori.

We are also able to offer our students the opportunity to be part of our Pasifika group, which has always been led by the wonderful aiga in our school community.  The underpinning core values and principles of our groups are Mana, Aroha and Pono.

Te Reo Māori is taught weekly in all classes and is then integrated into all areas of the curriculum.
