Caregivers of Year 6s
If you are the parent or caregiver of a Year 6 child, it is time to start thinking about where your child will be going to intermediate. The choice of Intermediate School is yours and you must enrol your child in the school of your choice, Hora Hora School does not do this for you. Please check our Facebook page and newsletters for more information as it comes to hand. We want all our Year 6s enrolled for 2021 before they leave us, so collect the necessary documents (e.g. Birth Certificates, Vaccination Certs) and start filling in the forms. Please get in touch if we can help you with this.

We will develop a healthy community,
where everyone is happy and confident enough
to ask questions, to think deeply and to make
informed choices.

We need to be able to dream,
to have self belief, to set goals, and to link ideas
in order to enhance our own lives, and to contribute
positively to our cultures.

The School Goals

  • To ensure children have an educational programme which develops their intellectual, social, emotional and creative areas so that they acquire basic skills in and understanding of: oracy, literacy, mathematics, the sciences, arts and Maori culture, and while doing so, cultivate a desire to continue learning.
  • To support the parents' role by helping children to develop respect for themselves and for others, and the skills needed to live and work harmoniously in a multicultural society.
  • Given the wide range of inherited abilities and environmental experiences, this school will endeavour to ensure equal opportunities, and provide a caring environment that will ready them for life experiences.
  • There are many broad aims of education and these cover many facets but basically we aim to help the children to become good citizens, able to lead happy and useful lives.
  • The children are encouraged to develop good habits as well as acquire knowledge and skills. We hope to provide the children with the opportunity to develop their individual abilities and become well adjusted socially.
