Rāwhiti School provides bi-lingual education (English/Te Reo Maori) for pupils from New Entrant to Year 8 level.
Ata Hāpara refers to the morning chorus – which originally was deafening in Aotearoa. This name gives inspiration to our bilingual teachers and learners, whose every effort is directed towards the reinvigoration of reo Māori in our community. We feel that the name Ata Hāpara fits well with our kura name, Rāwhiti, and helps to define their special role within the whole school.
Please contact the school office for more information about enrolling your child in our bi-lingual classes.
