In conjunction with the board of trustees, MOE, teachers, parents and students, Te Huruhi school has developed a School Charter to clarify our intentions both currently and going forwards.

Vision Statement

At Te Huruhi we are Confident, Connected and Creative Learners.


  • Confident – I am … positive in my own identity; motivated with a ‘can-do’ attitude; resilient; and a contributor (Resilience)
  • Connected – I take part, I participate; I relate well to others; I am an active learner; Turangawaewae … I have concern and feeling for the land, its people and the environment. (Reciprocity)
  • Creative – I am … imaginative; expressive and productive; a thinker – critical, reflective, and independent. (Resourcefulness)
  • Learner – I am … literate; numerate; a seeker, creator and wise user of knowledge; developing the skills and habits needed for lifelong learning. (Reflectiveness)
