School Features


Whatungarongaro te tangata, toitū te whenua - As man disappears from sight, the land remains.

Here at our school we take pride and joy in looking after our whenua. Papatuānuku is very important to us. So much so, that each week, Murray our tumuaki spends time with our senior kids working with the land, to make sure it is clean, fresh and most of all healthy.

Te Pā Harakeke Conductive Education

“What makes you different makes you beautiful!”

This is what we believe in our kura. There is nothing more important than being unique, so we have a team fully dedicated to look after those in high need, to support them in every way possible. Special needs are never a barrier here, just a well catered and tailored way of working with specific tamariki and their specific needs.

Criteria Applies

Tava'e -Bilingual Samoan Unit

Our pride is our identity, our heart is our culture and this is what we carry here at Naenae Primary School. We value where our ancestors came from, where we "tupuga mai ai". So we hold on tight to our "Gagana'' our "Language", we learn about our roots and customs. Like those before us, we will pass this knowledge on to the next generation. So that our Samoan language and ‘aganu’u’- culture will live on for generations to come. As the Samoan proverb goes, "E mamae le Tava'e i ona fulu" which means "We are proud of who we are and where we come from".
