Growing confident, adaptable, motivated learners

 Ma Te huruhuru, Ka rere Te manu

Adorn the bird with feathers so it can fly


 In order to achieve our vision, Pokeno School, in partnership with the community will develop:

  •  Children, staff and whanau who embrace the ‘Pokeno Way’.
  • A curriculum that caters for the individual needs of the children ensuring knowledge and skills have been built upon a strong foundation and best teaching practice.
  • A family orientated environment with an open door policy.
  • A culture that is accepting of diversity, within our friendly, inclusive atmosphere.
  • Children who have resilience and a desire to learn and embrace the values needed for personal success in life.
  • Children who are able to solve problems and think outside the square.
  • Opportunities for children and staff to experience and utilize a wide variety of Information and Communication Technologies.


Always having a positive attitude when interacting with each other and treating others the way you want to be treated. Always being a ‘TERRIFIC Kid’.
 Pokeno School, with the support of the Papakura Kiwanis, has adopted the ‘TERRIFIC Kids’ programme. This programme promotes character development and good citizenship.
