Our Vision and Values
Our school values reflect our dual heritage as citizens of Aotearoa NZ and what our people believe is important for our children to grow and develop and for our school to treasure and sustain. Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Courage our traditional values can also be seen through te ao Maori concepts of Manaakitanga, Kaitiakitanga, Whanaungatanga, and Kotahitanga.
We strongly believe in the importance of showing manaaki or respect, honesty, kindness and tolerance to one another, kaitiakitanga is our collective responsibility as caretakers of Patumahoe School to protect our traditional values, our environment, and our people. With this responsibility also comes courage. Whanaungatanga or belonging is about us ensuring that relationships are kept strong and that when you are a part of our school you will always belong here. Finally kotahitanga which for us is unity and the real strength of our school. Working together for shared goals.

Good morning families
Due to our recent change over to school APPs NZ, our newsletter will look a little bit different today. You will receive the newsletter a bit later on today via school APP as well as skoolloop. However, this will be the last time we will be using skoolloop to send out the newsletter. So please ensure that you have school APPs downloaded onto your phone over the long weekend. As of next Wednesday the 7th of May, we will no longer be using skoolloop for communications.
As usual our newsletter is available in several mediums: hardcopy (by request), school APPs, as well as being available on the school website www.patumahoe.school.nz
PTA Hot Cross Bun FundraiserTue Mar 30 11:44am
The Hot Cross Buns will be distributed to classrooms tomorrow Wednesday 31st ready for school pick up.
If you have purchased a few packets of buns, it would help if your child has a bag (shopping/carrier bag) to bring these home as we wouldn’t want them getting squashed in school bags.
With your fabulous support we raised $812!
Thank you and we hope you enjoy this delicious treat.
