The school motto is “Piki Haere”, which means “Keep on Climbing”. This was given to the school by Bishop Bennett of Waiapu. The motto fits very well with enhancing our children’s learning and further developing our school.

The school has adopted a whakataukī from 2016 - ‘Mā te huruhuru ka rere te manu’ - ‘Adorn the bird with feathers so it can fly’.

The school values are linked through the koru in the Pīpīwharauroa. Our community upholds and believes these values underpin all our beliefs and actions.
