 100% Tikokino recognises that everyone in the school community (staff, parents, caregivers, students, iwi, and extended community) is a valuable part of providing quality learning opportunities to Tikokino School students.  We focus on a sustainable and holistic approach to education recognising that each person is a unique individual with different interests, needs and abilities.

Our environment reflects this sustainable and holistic approach allowing children to enjoy the freedom of being children by playing on the fields, exploring in the forest, constructing houses, huts, towers and boats out of fence battens, tending vegetables in the garden, water in the sandpit, swinging from a rope, reading to the chooks, kicking a ball or just following their imagination.

We believe all our students succeed in many ways.  Our students have a culture of giving everything a go and doing everything to the best of their ability. We meet the needs of today and prepare for the challenges of tomorrow.

Whatever we set our minds to achieve – we do it together.

Our one school rule is RESPECT.

Respect for others

Respect for the environment

Respect for property

Respect for ourselves

Today, Tomorrow, Together
