E ngā mātāwaka o Aparima, tēnā koutou katoa.
Nau mai haere mai ki to tātou kura.
Choosing a secondary school for your child is one of the most important decisions you can make as a parent. I warmly invite you to visit Aparima College as part of that decision making process and discover why we are so proud of our school.
Our school motto is Knowledge is a treasurehouse which states that Knowledge is something to be valued and treasured as a taonga. Our educational programme clearly reflects this value and is delivered within a caring and supportive environment by our dedicated and professional staff.
We recognise that this knowledge does not exist only in the classroom. We offer exciting and vibrant opportunities for students both in and beyond the classroom with emphasis on helping our students build strong, positive relationships with their peers, the staff and the wider community.
Our core values of Focus, Integrity, Resilience, Service and Taumata drive us forward in helping achieve this vision. Aparima F.I.R.S.T reflects where we want our students to be !
At Aparima College - we want to be part of building up your child so they can develop the skills and knowledge to navigate themselves along their chosen pathway to success and open up access to the world at their feet.
Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro nōna te ngāhere,
Ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga nōna te ao.
The bird that partakes of the miro berry reigns in the forest,
The bird that partakes of the power of knowledge has access to the world.
Aku mihi nui ki a koe
