Hei whakatō hei whakamana i ngā ākonga o TeTara-o-te-Ika-ā-Maui  

Mission Statement: 

To create opportunities for learners to develop a deep sense of identity through the collective sharing of expert knowledge, relevant and inspired learning experiences, resulting in equitable outcomes for all learners. 

Every learner, in every classroom across the Coromandel Community of Learning feels a strong sense of well-being and connectedness as a result of learning and living in a school and community environment that is welcoming, equitable, inclusive and respectful.  A place where every learner is encouraged to take risks, be creative, and innovative in a learning culture that is supportive and safe. Through diverse connections, our learners will develop a deep sense of personal and cultural identity and develop robust educational pathways throughout their learning journey. 

There are nine schools in the Coromandel Community of Learning. Our group includes seven primary schools, and two area schools. 

Strategic Plan:

Together we have developed a collective vision and mission that reflects the intention of our Community of Learning, and will be a blueprint for how we intend to cultivate connectivity across our schools.  This plan consists of four Achievement Challenges/Goals: 

Goal 1: Raising student achievement through enhanced transition points. 

Goal 2: Strengthening cultural understanding and partnerships with parents and community. 

Goal 3: Ensuring equitable outcomes for all learners. 

Goal 4: Enhancing student agency through localised curriculum design.
