Welcome to Pigeon Mountain Primary School
Dear Parents and Pigeon Mountain School community.
Kia ora koutou!
We closed July by celebrating Māori Language Week. The focus for 2015 was helping to foster an appreciation of Te Reo in our students. Māori language is already widely used on a daily basis at Pigeon Mountain School- labels, books, learning materials, signs and greetings are commonplace in the environment. This year we dug deeper, exploring how whakataukī (proverbs) can be used to emphasise or explore our school values. Staff also engaged with Māori language and tikanga (protocols) during our professional development session reflecting on our progress towards retaining our 'beyond Green Gold' EnviroSchools status.
Sometimes learning and using new languages can push us outside our comfort zone, but we ensure we have a supportive environment in which everyone feels safe to 'give things a try', even the adults!
