Ngaio School

Our Place to Learn

Fono

Ngaio School values different cultures. We have a number of learning programmes and events designed to acknowledge and celebrate the different Cultures at Ngaio School and in our wider community.

At Ngaio School we hold regular fono meetings. These provide a chance for families and staff to connect and collaborate with one another to provide experiences for our children and discuss ways we can work together to best meet our learners needs. We are very fortunate to have an active parent group who partner with staff and the Clinic to provide opportunities for our learners.

At Ngaio School we celebrate Samoan language week. This provides the children with a chance to  share and explore Samoan culture in depth.

Every Year Ngaio School celebrates International Week. We celebrate different cultures during the annual International Week in September. This is a chance for the children to explore different cultures through food, costumes and a range of cultural performances.  We invite parents and experts from the community to share their cultural knowledge and experiences with us. The children are always excited to explore Samoan culture during these weeks.
