We are a rural school of around 130 Year 1 to 8 students, located 10 mins out of Raglan township on State Highway 23 in the mighty Waikato. Our vision is to "Expand the Hearts and Minds" of our students to become confident, connected, actively involved, life-long learners.

The Three Rs

Te Uku School has developed the Three R’s to enable students and teachers to live, learn, work and contribute as active members of this community.

  • Resilience – perseverance, engagement, self belief, wellbeing
  • Responsibility – interdependence, reflecting, self managing, thinking
  • Relationships – inclusion, teamwork, connected, observing

These are not separate or stand-alone. They are the key to learning in every learning area. Opportunities to develop the Three R’s occur in curricular and co-curricular experiences. The descriptors are not fixed and require on-going reflection and change to meet the needs of the students.
