Poutama Whanau

We have a whanau group which meet throughout the year to support and continue to develop the kaupapa in the school. Together the whanau and teachers developed this vision statement for the school strategic plan:

“Onslow College shares the Ministry of Education commitment to the vision of “Māori enjoying educational success as Māori” at Onslow College. Onslow College expresses this vision through te kaupapa o Poutama; to uplift Māori in our school by demonstrating Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the The Treaty of Waitangi, to strengthen Māori student confidence in te Ao Māori and to promote Māori student success in the wider school community.Our guiding principles include manaakitanga, whanaungatanga and te reo Māori. “
