Cultural Perspective


The school has strong ties to the local whakapapa and values the unique position of Māori in New Zealand.  Āria School provides a variety of programmes and opportunities that develop an awareness of things Māori and the Māori Language.

We believe our learning programmes are meeting the educational needs of our Māori (50%) students.

All staff are involved in our strong Te Ao Māori programme which  offers daily Te Reo Māori sessions to all students as well as a weekly, whole school kapa haka programme. Our school performs at various times throughout the year including Matariki celebrations, kapa haka festivals and prizegiving. 
We are confident that students at Āria School are receiving a balanced overview of the richness of our New Zealand heritage.
