What it means to be a Team Kereru pupil
In Team Kereru we endeavour to reflect the values demonstrated by
the native bird known as the Kereru.
The Kereru shows flexibility adapting its colours in various lights and
selecting food from up to 70 different plant species. Team Kereru students
also need to be flexible to cope with the many changes they face during a
school day and beyond school in their daily lives.
The Kereru is noted for its persistence, collecting up to 60 twigs to
build a single nest for its young. We know that Team Kereru students will
also develop persistence and stick with a task even when it is
challenging. With a positive attitude towards learning and a strong belief in
themselves, students in Team Kereru are able to make the transition into
being senior students and go forward confidently to become capable
learners within the school.
