Our Vision

Our learning community will be lifelong learners, empowered to use all the key competencies to shine in a range of contexts with....

Voice, Action and Identity

In 2016, Corinna School became a member of the Porirua East Kāhui Ako.

Ka oho te wairua (when the spirit is awakened)

Kia matara te tinana (when the body is alert)

He aroha, ki te aroha ka ka te rama (when love is unconditional, enlightenment follows)

This whakataukī was left by Te Rauparaha to his people, Ngāti Toa. Ngāti Toa have gifted it to our Porirua East Kāhui Ako. The underlying meaning of this whakataukī for us at Corinna School is that with knowledge, improvements can be made with and for our tamariki, whānau, communities and iwi.

At Corinna school, we choose to commit to working collaboratively to develop a coherent pathway of learning across eleven Porirua East schools. Our aim is to provide a future-focused education with consistently high quality teaching and learning at all levels and in all contexts for all students in Porirua East.

How well our graduates can express themselves to communicate across a range of audiences, make a decision to take action for themselves, their whānau and their community, as well as a strong, positive identity as to who they are is the measure of their success. Their successes will be reflected in their Voice, Agency and Identity.

This in keeping with the vision of the New Zealand Curriculum for all students who attend state schools to be confident, connected and actively involved and lifelong learners (page 8 New Zealand Curriculum 2007). This is what we want for our students.
