The Peachgrove Korowai

Our Curriuclum

The Peachgrove Korowai represents our curriculum of knowledge, traditions, ideals, values and principles.

Our students will be cloaked in the wisdom, learning, aroja and support of the Peachgrove community.

The Peachgrove Korowai identifies all which we deliver here at Peachgrove Intermediate.

First Learn to Serve

Our school motto is steeped in tradition. The motto is derived from a speech delivered by the Governor General Viscount Cobham;

“Leadership can only be exercised by those who have learned self-discipline. Nobody can learn to lead who has not first learned to serve”.

The Whenu

Each of these whenu have identifed skills and knowledge that we teach our learners within meaningful and relevant contexts.
