Welcome to Papatuanuku.
We are the middle school at Greerton Village School comprising of five Year 3 & 4 classes.
Papatūānuku Team Leader, Whaea Helen is a kaiako in our Bilingual Unit – Whakatō Te Kākano, along with Matua Reweti and Whaea Ricci. Our Whānau unit caters for years 2-6 and we are currently delivering a level 3 te reo Māori programme.
In Room 8 we have Sharyn Jones, Room 9 Abbie Bull and Room 10 Jacinda Cook. These classes are years 3 and 4.
Papatūānuku – our Earth Mother, requires us to care for her and protect our whenua, therefore keeping us well.
In Papatūānuku, we strive to be good Kaitiaki and care for each other.
We use a range of learning tools, from standard books, pens and pencils through to iPad’s and computers. With technology advancing so fast, all these tools, including problem solving and independent thinking, will help our 21st Century learners prepare for a future that has yet to be realised.
