At Kereru Park Campus we believe in the full potential of our children to learn, to progress and to achieve

Mission

At Kereru Park Campus we believe that ĀKONGA will be successful, connected and confident learners who know their cultural identity and are equipped with the continued support to realise their potential and strive for success.

We pride ourselves in equipping our ĀKONGA with the knowledge, values and pathways to achieve this.

Values

Aroha, Manaakitanga and Rangatiratanga

Aroha is the catalyst. Aroha is the underlying value that determines most if not all of our decisions. Aroha is loving others, loving what you do and loving most especially yourself.

Manaakitanga and Rangatiratanga are a byproduct of Aroha. Aroha is what drives us to care about others, to care about our school, to strive for the kaupapa that are important to us.

Kererū Park Campus previously known as Papakura South School has been a part of the Papakura community since its establishment on the 1st February 1954.

Kererū Park Campus provides education for students from Year 1 to 8. Māori students make up 80 percent of the roll and have opportunities to learn through their language, digital capability and cultural identity. We have approximately 200 students attending.

We have 9 Akomanga (classrooms). There are three Rūmaki Reo and three Reorua Akomanga.


We also have a Rosehill School satelite class and

Kohanga Reo -Te Kohanga Reo o Pukeroihi situated onsite. The Kohanga has increased the capacity of their roll to accomodate the needs of their whānau.

We are not a zoned school. However priority is given to those students wishing to seek Rūmaki reo in a Full Primary School Setting, our local Kohanga Reo and Reorua (Bilingual Māori).
