Ehara taku toa, he takitahi, he toa takitini.

My success should not be bestowed onto me alone, as it was not individual success but the success of a collective

Said humbly when acknowledged. This encompasses the concept of collective giftedness, which is accepted with Te Ao Māori, as it is here at Rhode Street. It may be the inter-personal and intra-personal relationships with that group that makes them shine. Sometimes no "one" individual possesses a gift.

This is in contrast to the internationally accepted concept of an individual being "gifted".

Naumai haere mai and a very warm WELCOME to Rhode Street School,

Hamilton's Whānau School.

We are located in the southwestern Hamilton suburb of Dinsdale.

Our beautiful school was established in 1959 on Ngati Mahaanga whenua and to this day, continues to deliver effective learning and teaching programmes for Year 0 to Year 8 ākonga.

Rhode Street School has developed as a centre of learning for our wider whānau community, where it is widely recognised as innovative and ecologically sustainable through our localised curriculum plan.

We welcome you to our kura whānau and trust you will come and visit us soon to see how we "haere I te korero or walk the talk" when it comes to ākonga agency, whānau engagement, and kaiako efficacy.

Online Learning Classes

These classes are available to whānau and ākonga of our Kura when required to isolate at home due to COVID-19 restrictions in place at any given time.
