Tena koutou katoa. Naumai haere mai ki te kura takiwa o Akaroa.
Greetings to one and all. Welcome to Akaroa Area School.
Akaroa Area School is a small school with strong community links and a family atmosphere. Students from Year 1 to Year 13 mix naturally and harmoniously with each other in an environment where we embrace whanaungatanga (familiness) as the foundation for akoranga (learning) where our tuakana (seniors or older siblings) mentor, support and care for our teina (juniors or younger siblings).
Kotahitanga – Awhinatia a nga ra
As one – Embracing the future
