Nau mai haere mai ki Te Rāwhiti Kindergarten me Te Rā Waldorf School!
A warm welcome to our website, from our team of teachers, teacher aides, assistants and office staff!
Here at Te Rāwhiti Kindergarten and Te Rā School we provide a nurturing and supportive environment for children to play, explore and learn. We encourage active parent and whānau participation: together, we build a community for our tamariki.
Our shared commitment is to provide high quality education through the pathway of our special character Waldorf curriculum and pedagogy – from Early Childhood through to our Class 7 (year 8). Collaboration also lies at the heart of our school leadership. As co-principals for the school and kaiārahi (manager) for the kindergarten, we contribute our passion for Waldorf education and our individual strengths in leading, teaching and learning.
We are grateful to those who have laid down the foundations for this beautiful place of learning and growing in the past. It is the work of our pioneer teachers and whānau on which we can build our children’s future. Their dedication lives on in the role of our proprietor’s trust, the Kapiti Waldorf Trust, which holds the governance role together with the school’s Board of Trustees.
Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.
