Tena koe! Thank you for your interest in our kura Puhi Kāiti. We are a busy place with high expectations and aspirations for our tamariki, kaiako and whānau. Kaiako who work here are here for the tamariki which is how it should be. We love what we do and we want the best for every Kāiti learner. There are just over 400 keen Kaiti kids at kura and 44 staff. Thats a pretty good ratio there. On site we have 1 adult for every 10 students! We have two learning pathways. Bi-lingual Māori Immersion and mainstream. All classes have a planned programmed of Te Reo Māori. We go all the way to Year 8 for Bilingual Māori and we just love having the rangatahi here as role models for our little ones.
There's been significant growth, development and inspiring progress here over the past 10 years and we are a school that moves with the times and is going places.
I was recently very fortunate to be awarded the Woolf Fisher Fellowship to travel the world and attend Harvard University to study leadership with 90 of the top principals from around the world. It was an honour to attend and tour other educational institutions around the world. I was very proud to see that Kaiti's curriculum is up there with the best.
Please come and visit us soon and learn more about this special place.
Love learning ....Love Kaiti School
Ngā mihi aroha
