What it means to be a Team Pukeko pupil
Pukekos are very sociable. They live peacefully together and work
co-operatively to gather food and raise their young. These traits are so
important to have in a classroom. We need Team Pukeko children to show
the co-operative skills of Pukeko.
In Team Pukeko we need each child to be caring and compassionate
towards each other as well as other children in the school. Getting on
peacefully with each other requires respect and honesty. These are
important in Team Pukeko.
Pukeko show our value of persistence and flexibility as they are one of the few
New Zealand native birds that have thrived since the arrival of man. As
learners in Team Pukeko the children need to be persistent in what they are
doing and not give up at the first sense of difficulty. Pukeko learners also
need to be flexible and adapt to changes that may occur.
