Our vision is for all learners to be self-regulating, curious, creative, and innovative.
The Enviroschools kaupapa (philosophy) is creating a healthy, peaceful and sustainable world through facilitating action-learning; where inter-generations of people work with and learn from nature. It weaves in Māori perspectives, combining traditional wisdoms with new understandings. Importantly, our kaupapa reminds us to be in connection: to love, care for and respect ourselves, each other and our planet. We are a Green Gold Enviro School.
Our teachers create authentic learning opportunities and rich conversations with children encouraging ‘wonderings’ and ‘curiosities’ that enable them to learn more about the world around them. Through play the teacher becomes an observer of the learning, judging when it is appropriate to provide a scaffold to new ideas and knowledge, when to be a resource provider, when to be a commentator and when to be a silent partner in the process.
Learning in authentic contexts in our many our outdoor classrooms, our students develop an understanding of how their curiosity inspires learning. Our 12 hectare bush borrowed from our neighbours is a weekly learning environment for the whole school.
At Te Miro school strong partnerships are fostered, both within our school and beyond to the wider community. As a result, the school is very ably supported by a strong PTA group, a dedicated Board of Trustees, and a proud community.
Te Miro School is a beautiful and peaceful environment where EVERY child is encouraged to discover their full potential. Explore our school prospectus to learn more about our unique approach.
