Ko ngā tamariki ngā rangatira mo apopo – Our children are our leaders of tomorrow.
My name is Pirihira Brown. I have been teaching at Horohoro School for the past eleven years and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here.
Since 2019 I have taken on the role of teaching principal. I am released from the classroom two and a half days a week by an amazing experienced junior teacher named Sarah Price. Sarah teaches in Hinengawari on Mondays, Tuesdays and Friday mornings.
In Hinengawari we have small classroom numbers. At present we have eleven amazing tamariki aged 5 to 7 (Year 1, 2 and 3)
Due to our small class numbers, we are able to work for longer periods of time with our reading, writing and mathematics groups. This has been very beneficial for our tamariki, as we are able to deliver an in-depth literacy and numeracy programme that is specifically targeted to their learning needs.
Every Friday our tamariki take part in a value-based programme called Kiwi Can. Kiwi Can is an energy-packed primary school programme, aimed at children aged 5 to 12 years. It teaches values such as integrity and respect, helps build resilience and delivers fun-filled learning for all tamariki.
If you would like to be part of an incredible school, look no further than Horohoro School.
We would love for you to join our wonderful whanau.
