AROHA - The Turaki Way

Our school is a PB4L (positive behaviour for learning) school. We are focused on teaching and recognising the behaviours that help to create life long learners that will become positive members of the community. The Turaki Way is to show AROHA in all aspects of school and the community. We believe that promoting these values will enable our students to become truly valuable members of our community, now and in the future.

Aroha is a hugely powerful word in te reo māori. While the basic definition of aroha is love, there is a lot more to it when broken into parts.

  • RO - inner, within, introspection

  • HA - life force, breath, energy
