Welcome to Pukekohe High School


The history of Pukekohe High School is characterised by a focus on academic achievement and personal excellence.
This focus continues today and is underpinned by the school’s purpose:

“To be a positive place of learning – He wāhi whai mana ki te rapu matauranga”;

and, the school’s values:

Community             
Ngaa Iwi Whaanui
Participation to promote the common good of our school and our community

Learning                 
Te Kaingakautanga ki te Ako      
Learning through innovation, inquiry and curiosity, as well as thinking critically, creatively, reflectively.

Excellence              
Te Tino Painga
Aiming high and persevering both personally and educationally

Accountability         
Kawenga
Being honest, responsible, and accountable

Respect                  
Manaakitanga
Respect for ourselves, others and the world around us

And, in the life of the school, we honour the unique place of Maori as tangata whenua of New Zealand.

The school’s priority is to continually seek improvements in levels of academic achievement and to ensure that this achievement is equally shared by all groups of students.  With this comes a focus on quality teaching and learning and the delivery of a curriculum which offers a wide subject choice and the opportunity to achieve success for all students.

We have three overarching goals:
•    To raise achievement by encouraging all student to seek to attain the highest levels of achievement they are capable of.
•    To reduce the disparities in achievement by concentrating on supporting and assisting the students who don’t share in the school’s
      levels of academic success.
•    To engage with parent or whanau by establishing good connections with the families of our students so that they are able to
      participate in their student’s learning.

Pukekohe High School offers students a wide range of co-curricular activities which are essential to developing personal skills of collegiality, competitiveness and excellence.  Pukekohe High School is a high performer in sporting and cultural pursuits.  We have a strong belief in the students’ individual capacity to extend their own experience and ability through commitment and involvement in the wide range of opportunities offered.  We are recognised as a leading performer in co-curricular competitions.

Our students are at the centre of what we do and our goal is to provide them with an environment that is secure, rewarding and stimulating.  Our prospectus provides insight into this environment.
