Foxton Primary School - EACH FOR ALL


Vision Statement

Ngā Moemoea – Our Vision


“He Kura Ate-Raukawa”

Providing a high-quality bilingual, modern kura


As is stated in our mission statement, we want our students to be educated in a modern bilingual environment, communicating in both Māori and English languages comfortably, utilizing technological tools to enhance their learning and creativity experiences whilst being mindful of people and places. This is expressed in the NZC and TMoA curriculum. 

Underlying Philosophy:

In 1949 Tā Āpirana Ngata wrote in the autograph book of schoolgirl Rangi Bennett this profound writing. Our tamariki say this speech at karakia and it is still relevant today:

E tipu e rea mō ngā rā o tō ao
Ko tō ringa ki ngā rākau a te Pākehā
Hei oranga mō te tinana
Ko tō ngākau ki ngā tāonga a ō tïpuna Māori
Hei tikitiki mō tō māhuna Ko tō wairua ki tō atua, Nānā nei ngā mea katoa
 – Tā Āpirana Ngata

Grow and branch forth for the days destined to you

Your heart to the treasures of your ancestors as adornments for your brow
 Your spirit to god, who made all things
