How Does Paparoa School give effect to Te Tiriti O Waitangi?

At Paparoa School we acknowledge Te Tiriti O Waitangi by recognising the principles of partnership, participation and protection embedded within the Treaty. To honor this commitment, we integrate Te Reo Māori (Māori language). Tikanga Māori (Māori customs and protocols), and the perspectives of Māori culture and history throughout our curriculum and school practices. We strive to create an inclusive and respectful environment where the Treaty’s principles are upheld, fostering understanding, equity and collaboration among all members of our school community.

We recognise Te Uri O Hau of Ngāti Whātua, who are mana whenua.
