    All students in Te Puāwai are encouraged to reach their full potential, implementing our MANA values, and having high expectations with learning and behaviour.

    Our learning is centred around Speaking, Reading, Writing and Maths in English and Māori. ICT is a part of daily learning. All Kaiako will ensure that we have a productive relationship with your child, you, the whānau, iwi and wider communities. These are vital foundations for effective teaching, learning and support for our students

  • Hi, my name is Rashirl Kereopa. I was born in Wairoa (East Coast). We moved to Whanganui when I was young.

    I teach in our Te Puāwai and I am also the school sports coordinator. I organise/coach our school sports teams, along with the support of our amazing staff and whānau. I encourage all of our students to take ownership of their learning and share their knowledge with their fellow peers.
